Great news for HDYO this week as the HDA in England & Wales signed the HDYO business plan and confirmed their official support for the organization. The HDA have long been admirers of HDYO and helped set up HDYO in the first place, so it was fantastic for both sides to be able to make the partnership official. The HDA has provided just over 25% of HDYO's planned budget for 2012, the biggest contribution yet to the HDYO cause!
Cath Stanley, Chief Executive of the HDA, said “HDYO is a great initiative and essential resource created by young people for young people. It will form an invaluable resource and support for young people who can empower themselves with knowledge, which will in turn help them cope with the issues relating to Huntington's disease. I am impressed with the standard of information provided on this website”.
HDYO is thrilled to have the support of the HDA and hope to continue the collaboration throughout 2012 and beyond.
