Thalidomide Society

The Thalidomide Society was formed in 1962, by parents of children with impairments caused by thalidomide. The Society began primarily as a support group for the children, their families and carers as there was little help from the UK government and health authorities.

The Society’s current activities include fundraising, oral history, research and archiving as well as providing our usual support network. To fund its activities, the Society depends mainly upon investment income, individual donations, legacies, corporate donations and funds from government or other bodies.
