We have two new resources available to explain genetic haemochromatosis to youngsters in a lively, age-appropriate way.

  • GH Explained (8-13 year olds)
  • GH Explained (Teens)

We have free copies available for :

  • families
  • teachers
  • youth groups
  • schools
  • NHS GPs
  • NHS hospitals

...and others working with children. 

Haemochromatosis UK members can simply request a free copy online (HUK membership number required). Thanks to the Ernest Hecht Charitable Foundation these booklets are also available in our new schools packs for teachers, youth groups, hospitals and GP surgeries. To receive an individual copy or schools pack, please contact our office or request a pack online.

This work has been generously supported by Envision and the Ernest Hecht Charitable Foundation.

In this video, you can meet Ellanor (age 13) and her Mum Sarah. Ellanor is a young carer for her Mum, who is affected by genetic haemochromatosis.
