PMSFUK - Phelan McDermid Syndrome Foundation UK


To date PMSF UK have been able to provide our families with over 80 awards for PMS children and their families. Awards going towards horse riding, swimming, sports & art clubs and additional therapies. The Trustees at PMSF UK have agreed to provide a number of different types of awards which are listed below. If you would like to apply for your family then click on the application form below, complete and return by e-mail to:

Applications can be submitted at anytime and will be reviewed 3 times a year at the end of January, May and September. If you are applying for more than one award please complete an application form for each award and indicate which is your priority.

During 2020 with the unprecedented situation of Covid-19, we have been able to further support families with additional one off awards.



PMSF UK is a small charity and will seek to support as many awards as it can afford. The trustees will make decisions on awards and affordability. Families can apply for multiple awards and may apply several times (within the same year or multiple years). The trustees will seek to share the benefits across the whole community. Families are responsible for any tax obligations associated with receiving an award.
