Who we are
Narcolepsy UK's objectives continue to be to provide relief and aid to those persons suffering from narcolepsy.
Our vision is to help provide a world where narcolepsy is understood and people with narcolepsy have the support they need to ensure that their rights are upheld and that they have the same opportunities as others in society.
At a practical level, we deliver this by:Collecting and distributing information via our social media channels, website, Facebook and Twitter.
Raising professional, political and public awareness and understanding of the needs of people with narcolepsy, their families and carers.
Campaigning to influence the policies of legislators and funding bodies.
Delivering relevant sustainable services that satisfy the needs of people with narcolepsy, their families and carers.
Providing information and practical support to people with narcolepsy, their families and carers, either directly, in partnership with others or by facilitating and supporting the work of other organisations.
Supporting research into the effects and management of narcolepsy.
Our strategic aim is to achieve all this through a combination of fundraising, continuing dialogue with politicians, medical professionals, other patient groups across the European Union in particular and a variety of projects.
