Alpha-1 Awareness is a charity founded and run by volunteers to help bring awareness of AATD as well as give support to those affected, their families, friends and carers.  We can’t do this alone, and we are so thankful to those who help in our Facebook Group respond to people’s posts and help them understand the condition and any issues they may be facing.

Last month we announced that Helen Shaw agreed to help us in a more official role as our Charity Ambassador due to the fantastic work she has been doing helping people in our Facebook Group.  We are very pleased to announce that we have expanded the Board to include 2 new members.

We have asked Helen to join the Board of the Charity with the position “Facebook Support” so that she can help us run the charity. Pauline Laybourne MBE has been supporting our charity for a very long time and has aided us in raising charity funds. She has been invaluable in supporting us and driving our charity forward. We asked Pauline if she would also be willing to join our Board with the position “Public Liaisons”.  We are very thankful that Pauline also accepted.

Please join me in welcoming and thanking both Helen & Pauline. Thank you both, I very much look forward to working with you.
