FCS Compliance is delighted to announce their chosen charity, The Pituitary Foundation’, a charity which was close to the heart of FCS Compliance Founder, Jerry Walters. Over the next financial year, the FCS Compliance team will be supporting The Pituitary Foundation’s activities and raising awareness for this amazing charity’s exceptional work.
About the charity:
Set up in 1994, The Pituitary Foundation is a national support and information organisation for pituitary patients, their families, friends and carers. It is the UK’s leading charity for providing support to people affected by disorders of the pituitary gland such as acromegaly, Cushing’s, prolactinoma, diabetes insipidus and hypopituitarism.
The Pituitary Foundation is a small charity currently funded from voluntary sources to support the thousands of people affected by pituitary conditions each year – approximately 70,000 people in the UK.
Jay Sheppard, Head of Fundraising at The Pituitary Foundation said:
“The support from FCS Compliance means a great deal to us. We are a small charity with no government funding and all support is hugely appreciated. But it’s not just financial support but raising awareness of the Pituitary Foundation and its work is vitally important.
“Pituitary related illnesses can be difficult to diagnose. People often live with the disease for several years without receiving a diagnosis and the symptoms can be generic which means some may carry the disease without realising it.
“But the impact on the lives of those living with it, is huge and often life limiting. While the impact on family and friends of sufferers is significant too. At the Pituitary Foundation we support thousands of people affected by pituitary conditions each year which is why the support from FCS Compliance is so very welcome.”
Emma Herriman, Marketing Director of FCS Compliance added: “We are delighted to be supporting The Pituitary Foundation. Even though they are a small charity, the work they do is phenomenal and has a huge impact on the lives of those affected and their loved ones. We look forward to working with them in the year ahead.”
