About your Good Cause

The Thalidomide Society was formed in 1962 by the parents of children affected by the drug thalidomide. The original aim of the Society was to provide mutual support and a social network as well as to seek compensation.

Today the Society’s members include those affected by thalidomide, their families and carers as well as people with similar dysmelic impairments. The Society

  • continues to provide a social network,
  • strives to provide insight and information to anyone seeking to understand the history of thalidomide,
  • contributes to ongoing research and archival material on the drug and
  • supports projects which ensure the impact of thalidomide is never forgotten.


Thank you very much for your support and may we ask you to tell your friends, neighbours and work colleagues about us and encourage them to join our lottery.
