Our purpose is to see children and families living with Usher syndrome love their lives.

Our mission is to empower the Usher community through support, connection and knowledge.

About Usher Syndrome

Usher syndrome is a genetic condition characterised by hearing loss or deafness, the progressive loss of vision and in some cases, vestibular dysfunction. The loss of vision is caused by an eye disease called Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP), which affects the light-sensitive area of tissue on the back of the eye (the retina).
