December 2011 saw the closure of the PiA (Primary Immunodeficiency Association) an organisation that had existed to look after the interests of people with immunodeficiencies in the United Kingdom. This left a lot of people vulnerable and without representation.
Therefore, I decided to offer my web design skills to a group of fantastic people who were looking to setup a patient led association to replace the PiA.
After a lot of hard work it gives me great pleasure to announce the launch of UKPIPS.org.uk a new charity that will provide information, advice and support to people living with a Primary Antibody Deficiency (PAD) or any other Primary Immune Deficiency (PID).
In case you’re wondering, UKPIPS is an acronym for United Kingdom Primary Immunodeficiency Patient Support.
The new website features the tools to grow an online community around this charity, a donation system and a live Twitter feed.
