Go chairless at your next Board Meeting!

Living with Huntington's Disease is hard enough. Having the wrong chair makes it even harder.

Huntington's is a degenerative disease that takes away your bodily control. The right chair gives someone living with Huntington's Disease the support, comfort and safety they need to get through each day.

Your donation will allow us to provide the right chair for those who need it most.

What is Huntington's Disease?

Huntington’s Disease is an inherited disease affecting areas in the brain which control movement, thinking and emotion. It has a slow progression, and symptoms gradually worsen over time. While there is no cure for Huntington's Disease at this time there are medications and therapies that may alleviate some of the more common symptoms of the disease.

The impact on a family of even one person with Huntington’s is significant, and more commonly, there are a few people across generations who inherit the gene.

Support our vision for the Huntington's Community!

Brightwater is currently building a new world class campus, purpose-built to the highest standards, to support people with Huntington’s disease and provide accommodation for 21 clients over 7 homes. It will also include a sensory garden with zones for living, relaxing, engaging and socialising. For this reason, the Huntington’s campus is not only about the people who we provide direct care for, but also their immediate and extended families.

Brightwater Piara Waters has been co-designed with families affected by Huntington’s Disease, allied health, advocacy and clinical organisations.

Living with Huntington's Disease requires specialist equipment, including chairs. As part of the Piara Waters development we are seeking support to purchase a new collection of purpose-built chairs. Your donation will allow someone living with Huntington's Disease to sit comfortably in their new home. 

How it works

  • Donate a chair

    Make a donation by following the Donate Now instructions above and 'purchase' a chair for people living with Huntington's Disease. If you have any questions regarding your donation, please contact Nicola Bedwood on 0427 276 016 or [email protected]

  • Go chairless at your next meeting

    Leave the chairs at the side of the room at your next meeting (it doesn't have to be a board meeting). Take a photo of your team going chairless and post it on LinkedIn tagging #chairlessboard.

    As gratitude for your support, we will include you in our Wall of Fame placed on this landing page. 

    Thank you! You have supported people living with Huntington's Disease.
