Jeans for Genes

Charity description

Jeans for Genes logo
Genetic Disorders UK (Jeans for Genes) is a registered charity with a vision to improve the lives of individuals and families affected by genetic disorders.

While individual genetic disorders are rare, it is thought that there are currently more than 6,000 diagnosed disorders and new disorders are being identified every day. It is estimated that 1 in 25 children is affected by a genetic disorder. This means that in the UK, 30,000 babies and children are newly
diagnosed each year.

We aim to be the leading source of information and support for both those affected by a genetic disorder, and the charities and patient groups that support them, by bringing together everyone’s combined experience in a place it can be shared.

Genetic Disorders UK is run by a small team that also organises the annual Jeans for Genes Fundraising Day.

We are hoping that by raising as much money as possible on Jeans for Genes Day we will be able to launch much needed support services and increase the number of grants we provide to disorder-specific charities.

Please do get in touch as we would love to hear from you:
