Azpiral announce partnership with 22q11 Ireland

Azpiral’s chosen charity partner for 2018/2019 is 22q11 Ireland.
Azpiral will work with 22q11 Ireland on specific areas the organisation is developing to ensure each person’s growth and future while facilitating valuable research and creating awareness of the organisation online.

We are excited to announce that Azpiral will support the Irish YEEP (Young Experts by Experience Panel) this year. This programme began in 2016 when a group of young adults with 22q11.2 deletion syndrome engaged with an independent mental health researcher Ms Lorna Kerin to discuss their experiences with the syndrome and guide Lorna’s research.

The YEEP project was established to give a voice to young adults with 22q11.2 deletion syndrome, inform and guide research conducted on 22q11 and to improve understanding of the syndrome for medical experts, treatment services and the families of people with the 22q11.2 deletion syndrome.

This initiative gives the young adults that are part of the YEEP programme an opportunity to meet monthly, develop relationships, have fun and contribute to something invaluable to the future development of children with 22q11.2 deletion syndrome.

At Azpiral we are delighted to work and support 22q11 Ireland and particularly the YEEP initiative on their journey for growth and understanding.
