Unique is a source of information and support to families and individuals affected by any rare chromosome disorder and to the professionals who work with them. Unique is a UK-based charity but welcomes members worldwide. Membership of Unique is free but the group receives no government funding and is heavily reliant on donations and fundraising to continue its work. Please help us in whatever way you can.

You may have been given a diagnosis or indication of a chromosome disorder by a geneticist or other medical professional and they may have used a medical term which is unfamiliar to you. So to help you decide if Unique is the appropriate organisation for you, we thought it would be useful to describe the different categories of rare chromosome disorder. Rare chromosome disorders can be grouped as structural disorders, numerical disorders and other miscellaneous disorders.
