The Management Committee


Who Are We?

The Chromosome 18 Registry and Research Society (Europe) is a charity set up to bring European families affected by any chromosome 18 abnormalities together to share information and experiences. Our organisation covers all chromosome 18 abnormalities: 18q-, 18p-,Ring 18,Tetrasomy 18p and inversions of chromosome 18.

The charity was founded by an affected woman, her mother and the grandparents of a young boy, all of whom lived near Glasgow. The organisation was registered as a charity in Scotland in 2009 (SC040399). We now have a committee of eight volunteers, all of whom are related to people affected by Chromosome 18 disorders.

Welcome to the Chromosome 18 Registry and Research Society (Europe).

We are affiliated to the Chromosome18 Registry and Research Society based in San Antonio, Texas. Our mission is to help individuals with chromosome 18 abnormalities overcome the obstacles they face so they might lead happy, healthy and productive lives.

We aim to bring the latest research done by the Chromosome 18 Registry and Research Society in Texas to people affected by all chromosome 18 disorders and their families in Europe. To do this, we run family conferences where affected children and adults, parents, siblings, relatives, friends and professionals get together to laugh, learn and play together.


COVID-19 Home Schooling Webinar

This, our first, webinar was a great success and many thanks to Claire Harrison from CALL Scotland and Paul Seeman for their help and providing so much good advice and links to a whole range of resources that will be a great help to all of us trying to give our kids some home schooling. I know that for most school has finished for this term but there are lots of ideas and resources here which could be used to entertain and educate our children over the summer.

The link below takes you to a recording of the webinar which you an watch as many ties as you like.
