Today we joined forces with Rett UK to write to the Chancellor, Rishi Sunak, highlighting the funding gap for small, national VITAL rare disease charities like the BDFA.
The Batten Disease Family Association is one of many small national charities that supports people with rare diseases. As we are national, it is very difficult for us to access local community funds. This is where the majority of emergency funding for charities, including government funding, is being directed.
We have written to Rishi Sunak, The Chancellor of The Exchequer, to highlight the issue and are backing the campaign #NeverMoreNeeded. We are also contacting other MPs we have links with.
If you would be happy to share a copy of the letter with your MP please do share and let us know.
