Family Gathering and AGM – registration opens to Huntington’s community

This year’s Family Gathering and AGM will take place on Saturday 4 November at DoubleTree by Hilton Dunblane Hydro, Perth Road, Dunblane.

It is open to everyone whose life is impacted by Huntington’s disease, including those who have the disease or are at risk of developing it, carers and loved ones.

Our Patron Sarah Winckless MBE will lead the morning session by sharing her personal insights and taking part in a discussion with a panel of family members from across the generations.

In the afternoon there will be a choice of workshops designed to suit the varying needs of family members, followed by the Scottish Huntington’s Association Chair Cat Martin who will also share her reflections on both the day and the year itself.

During it all there will be plenty of free time so attendees can relax and socialise with friends old and new from  our community.

Attendance at the Family Gathering is free with lunch and morning and afternoon refreshments provided. Information about how to reserve your place(s) can be found overleaf.

Those who wish to attend are asked to book their places by Thursday 12 October using the online registration form at
