Guillain-Barre & Associated Inflammatory Neuropathies (GAIN) is dedicated to helping people affected by GBS, CIDP and the related conditions throughout the UK and Ireland. We provide information and support to patients and their families, raise awareness of the conditions amongst medical and social care professionals, and help to fund and facilitate research.
Raising funds and awareness for a rare disease is never easy. Everyone knows someone affected by stroke, cancer or dementia, and we've all heard of the big charities that do fantastic work to help people with these conditions. But until someone you know is diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome, CIDP, or one of the associated inflammatory neuropathies, chances are you've never heard of it before. That's where GAIN comes in, providing information and support when it is needed most. It's really important that people know there is help available if they have been recently-diagnosed with GBS or CIDP. And that's where you come in.
Your donation or fundraising efforts could pay towards leaflets and information packs for hospitals and surgeries throughout the country, signposting patients and their families to the help and support offered by GAIN. It could pay for a communication aid, or travel expenses during months of daily hospital visits. It could even pay towards vital research into the causes, treatment and prevention of these conditions. With your help, GAIN will continue to be there whenever and for as long as we are needed.
Your support means the world to us. Thank you.

How wonderful is it that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world? Ann Frank
