Design MEP’s chosen charity for 2023 is PANS PANDAS UK.
PANS PANDAS UK support children and families living with the neuropsychiatric condition PANS and PANDAS. Our aim is to educate and raise awareness of the condition, so that no family have to face it alone.
This charity is close to the heart of our director Gareth, whose daughter suffers with PANDAS. As a team we wanted to support this charity to raise awareness of all the great work they do with many children dealing with this life changing condition across the UK.
PANS and PANDAS are conditions causing inflammation in the brain resulting in neuro-psychiatric symptoms such as OCD, tics, eating disorders and anxiety along with many more. More commonly affecting children, these conditions can be isolating and life changing. PANS PANDAS UK’s mission is to ensure speedy diagnosis and effective treatment for sufferers by educating the medical community as well as offering support to sufferers and their families.

Throughout 2023 we will be raising money and spreading awareness of the amazing work this charity does… Watch this space!
