Hello and welcome to Assert

Welcome to the website for Assert, the Angelman Syndrome Support Education & Research Trust. We are a UK based charity whose primary aims are:

support_iconSupport

We help support families and carers of people with Angelman Syndrome. We also provide support to professionals who meet AS individuals, even though they may meet very few individuals with Angelman Syndrome in their professional career.

education-iconEducation

We aim to educate and raise awareness of this rare neurological condition and the issues that surround it. As with many such conditions, Angelman Syndrome is not just about a simple diagnosis, but requires parents and carers to adapt as situations change and the individual grows older.

research_iconResearch

Historically we have assisted many organisations and individuals in carrying out research into Angelman Syndrome and its many related areas. Much of this research has already provided great benefit to families and carers around the world. Today, we are founder members of the European Angelman Syndrome Alliance – a cross border research initiative that is allowing smaller groups to pool resources for the benefit of all.
