Individuals and Families

The Genetic and Rare Disease Network (GaRDN) provides information to support individuals, families and carers living with genetic, rare and undiagnosed conditions.

GaRDN can assist with enquiries and resources relating to education, parenting, respite care, health services and other community support organisations.

Being diagnosed with a genetic or rare condition may be extremely difficult and confusing for you and your family. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed recently, GaRDN may be able to help you navigate through this complicated time.
