By making a gift in your Will to the Dystonia Society you'll be making a major contribution towards improving the lives of people living with dystonia across the UK
Gifts in Wills, or Legacies, are a significant source of support for the Dystonia Society. Without these generous gifts much of our vital work, including our Helpline and Support Services and funding research, would just not be possible.
"There's so little awareness of dystonia it has been hard. There's been lots of tears and anger and our family has been under a huge strain - it's shown in all of us - but having a diagnosis has meant we can move on."

"It's like coming out of a long tunnel. For so long we've waited for someone to take our case seriously and all this time John has been a shell of his former self. For the first time, we were taken seriously and have a proper programme of treatment. The doctor apologised to us for our former treatment by the NHS. At least we have hope and it's all thanks to the Dystonia Society"

We are enormously grateful to those who remember the Society in their Wills. All the new projects we have undertaken recently have only been possible due to income from legacies.
