PIP-UK is a registered charity. Our activities include 1-2-1 engagements with individuals and families so we work directly with those affected. We host community events that bring those affected together. We also run advocacy and wellbeing services and clinics with health care professionals to encourage their involvement.
There are no specialist doctors for Poland syndrome, so for our community this means diagnosis and treatment is difficult. Parents can be accused of mistreating a child when shoulders are hypermobile, teenagers go through years of torment, and adults live with debilitating mental health issues due to a lifetime of hiding their bodies. Our work is about supporting this marginalised community and for them to be treated equally against other disabilities while raising awareness and connecting the community.
Poland syndrome is rare limb difference you are born with, the body is affected on one side where muscles, bones or organs are absent or underdeveloped.
