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.

Thank you to our London Marathon runners this year. The total amount raised, at just over £23000 is just amazing, and the most successful year we have ever had. It is a mind blowing total! We would like to say a huge thank you to Sarah Brown, Jane Tunbridge, Helen Bly, Clare Collins, Scott Jones, Gavin Smith, Lisa Cutts and Duncan Cottrill- and all those who supported them. Look out for details of the 2018 places in the Autumn. ... See MoreSee Less

We are planning another young designer award on the 28 October at the Pullman London Hotel and we will continue to raise awareness about Angelman Syndrome.
We are extending an invitation to anyone or any group of individuals that would like to organise a prize draw or raffle or something of that nature to be drawn at the event in order to raise funds for ASSERT. If anyone or group would like to do this and be a part of the event do get in touch. Anyone can do this; but I always say that a group young people may have a bit more time to deliver on something like prize draw or raffle.
I’m on email Joanna_marcella@hotmail.com my Mobile is: 07940647102.
By the way, my grandson Manasseh has Angelman Syndrome.
