The 22q Foundation Australia and New Zealand creates an inclusive space for families to connect, learn and feel less isolated. We are a conduit for researchers, medical & allied health professionals.

Whilst our main focus is on 22q11.2 Deletion & Duplication Syndrome we do offer basic information on other conditions affected by chromosomal abnormalities on the 22nd chromosome in the "q" region. 

We understand that receiving a new diagnosis can be daunting and we hope that the information provided on our website is helpful and practical. To find out more about 22q11.2DS, visit our Newly Diagnosed page. 


All committee members of the foundation are volunteers. Should you wish to contact us please use our contacts page.  

Membership to our foundation is free. Feel free to join here.
