Address: Veterans in Action, The Old Grain Store, Redenham Park. Nr Andover, Hampshire SP11 9AQ

Veterans in Action (VIA) started as  an idea in early 2008 by three ex Royal Engineer friends, two of who had been injured physically and one who suffered from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PSTD) who wanted to raise funds for injured troops both physically and psychological.

The idea was based around their own experiences in the Royal Engineers was to take a group of veterans on an overland expedition driving from Headley Court to South Africa and back. The aim of the expedition was to carry out small tasks on the way, giving aid to locals with the aim being that they would “help themselves by helping others”

Helpline:  01371 875 100

Address: The Fragile X Society, Rood End House,6 Stortford Road, Great Dunmow, Essex CM6 1DA 

The Fragile X Society was formed in 1990 by families whose children had just been diagnosed with Fragile X Syndrome. At that time there were no facilities to support and inform families about any aspect of fragile X, and so the Society came into existence. The charity has now grown to consist of a team of dedicated employees and volunteers, supporting thousands of individuals and families.

Our Aims

  • To provide information and practical guidance to support and empower individuals and families living with Fragile X Syndrome and Fragile X-associated conditions
  • To educate and inform the public and professionals about Fragile X in order to raise awareness and understanding of the syndrome and improve support for all individuals affected by Fragile X
  • To encourage research into all aspects of Fragile X through the participation of our family members in Fragile X studies and to publicise the results.
  • To raise funds to carry out our work
