About WSF

Ever since it began in 1980, the Williams Syndrome Foundation has been run by parents for parents. 


Our Mission Statement


  • To be the first point of contact for individuals with Williams Syndrome, their families and professionals needing support and information regarding the Syndrome.
  • We will actively support research into the educational, behavioural, social, scientific and medical aspects of the Syndrome.
  • We will seek to organise our financial and personnel resources so as to achieve our mission on a sustainable basis.


The Foundation is supported by eminent medical and professional advisers on our Professional Advisory Panel.


The Williams Syndrome Foundation is still relatively unknown, but very cost-effective. Any contribution to our aims would be most gratefully received. Click here to donate online, or contact the WSF office here.
