Community Based Genetic Literacy and Support Project

My name is Saima Ahmed I am a Community Development worker who has been working on the ‘Genetic Literacy and Support’ project  for the last 3 years. The project was initially funded by Genetic Disorders UK following a bid put in by Firvale Community Hub and The University of Sheffield. The project has been funded by Sheffield City Council for the last 4 years.

If you would like to talk to anyone regarding genetic risks in your family as a result of close cousin marriages then you can speak to your GP who can refer you to the Regional Genetic Service.

The following website will also provide you with information and contacts.
