An estimated one in 25 children is affected by a genetic disorder
While some genetic disorders are apparent at birth, others are diagnosed at different stages throughout childhood, and some into adolescence.
There are around 6,000 genetic disorders, of which it is estimated that one in 25 children are affected by a genetic disorder. Each year in the UK alone, 30,000 babies and children are newly diagnosed.
