Donate to the Huntington’s Disease Youth Organization
HDYO has more information about HD available for young people, parents and professionals on our site:
Young people impacted by Huntington’s disease (HD) are over twice as likely to experience traumatic events in their childhood compared to those not in families with Huntington’s disease. Since launching in 2012, despite being a small charity, we have made a significant impact on young people impacted by HD around the world, see an overview of our work below: We provide services such as online counselling, educational content for all age groups to understand all aspects of HD, youth camps, young adult conferences and events. Will you help us?

HDYO Young Adult Congress – Glasgow 2020
We are hosting the first ever international young adult HD event in Glasgow May 2020. It’s going to be an incredible event and we’re aiming to have over 500 young adults impacted by HD from around the world attend the event. We’re aiming to raise $75,000 towards a scholarship fund which young adults can apply to help them attend the event.

HDYO Youth Camps
Our unique HD Youth Camps for teens/young adults offer a special opportunity for young people to attend meet other young people like them, learn more about HD in our engaging group work and receive support from our experienced staff team. We have done several camps in Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand, as well as South America, showing our passion and desire for bringing support to young people across the globe. Each camp brings over 50 young people together and our camps have been proven to improve the lives of young people in HD families. We’ve had over 550 young people attend HDYO camps for free, from over 20 countries on 4 continents.
