Following the success of Contact NI’s rare conditions conference in January, a second event has been announced for next month in Northern Ireland.

“Supporting Children and Families living with Rare Diseases in Northern Ireland” will take place on Wednesday 15th May from 9.30am-1.30pm at the Dunsilly Hotel in Antrim.

Book your free place by using our Eventbrite page.

The free half-day conference is open to anyone caring for or supporting a child or young person with a rare condition. It will bring together parent carers and professionals to share experiences, find out about information and resources, and create a space for conversations and connections.

During the event, Contact will be launching a new report detailing some of the key findings from our January conference. The programme also includes taster workshops for parent carers and professionals, a Q&A panel discussion, and an exhibition hall where a number of local and national organisations will be on hand to offer information and support. The conference is being delivered in collaboration with the Northern Ireland Rare Disease Partnership, the Pears Foundation and Dormant Accounts Funding NI.

A free buffet lunch will also be provided at the end of the morning.
