You can join us, too

Fewer than 1 in 6 of the subscribers to this newsletter are members of the charity. If all our readers were to join us as members for just one year we would really be a patient voice to reckon with. We could have our say on education, employment and research and really make a positive impact on the quality of life of everyone living with nystagmus.

So please make this the year you join!

Join us today
