Contact other people affected by a genetic condition

  • Home
  • Contact Corner

Genetic Alliance will post requests for contact and letters from people searching for families with similar experiences, from those seeking or contributing specific information as well as other resource information.

Anyone who wishes to reply to a request should write directly to the individual or group concerned where an address is provided. The office may be contacted for the information to be passed on in the case of anonymous requests. Privacy and anonymity will be ensured if requested.

While GA Australia aims to facilitate contacts between families it is unable to assess the suitability of these in individual cases.

It should be remembered that a shared genetic condition does not necessarily mean an equally shared value system between families. Different degrees of acceptance and different mechanisms for coping will be encountered and a non-judgemental approach is recommended in establishing contact.
