Behçet’s UK (formerly Behçet’s Syndrome Society) represents all Behçet’s patients in the UK including those yet to be diagnosed. We strive to secure the best care for all Behçet’s patients and assist their carer’s, parents and relatives. Reducing time to diagnosis, adopting consistent criteria, is our top priority; sitting alongside ensuring that members diagnosed with Behçet’s receive access to timely effective treatment together with best practice care and pathways. Raising comprehensive awareness of Behçet’s amongst all clinicians within NHS primary, secondary and tertiary care is vital in achieving these outcomes, together with promoting research into the cause, effects, treatment and management of this rare, complex and debilitating lifelong disease. Having helped to establish 3 Behçet’s Centres of Excellence in England, we now lobby for proper comprehensive care in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Bendrigg Trust specialises in delivering high quality adventure activity courses for disabled and disadvantaged people. We aim to promote inclusion, encourage independence and build self-confidence through the safe provision of adventurous activities. Everyday we see the impact of our adventure residential courses for our participants. It’s no secret that pushing yourself out of your comfort zone can work wonders for personal development. There are also a number of studies which show the benefits of being outdoors for mental health. People with additional needs, don’t often have the opportunity to experience outdoor adventure activities. So for them it’s no exaggeration to say that a trip to Bendrigg can be truly life changing. Family members, teachers or carers often attend a residential alongside the participant – they too can gain a huge amount from the experience and by seeing this person achieve through adventure it often changes their perception of just what the person is capable of.
