About the charity

APS Support UK

Prior to 2016, the charity was known as the Hughes Syndrome Foundation - (this is currently still our official trading name). The trustees decided to use the name, APS Support UK, to reflect the fact that medical practitioners now almost universally refer to Hughes syndrome as the antiphospholipid syndrome (APS). It was agreed that this was in the best interest of all patients.

Aims and objectives

APS Support UK is dedicated to supporting anyone affected by antiphospholipid syndrome.

We aim to achieve earlier diagnosis and the best possible treatment for patients by:

  • informing doctors and healthcare professionals about antiphospholipid syndrome
  • raising awareness of APS in the general public and media
  • offering support and understanding to anyone affected by the condition
  • raising funds to provide support, education and research

APS Support UK is a small charity that punches well above its weight but, thanks to all our supporters and volunteers, we have achieved a lot so far and will endeavour to do all we can to help those affected by this disorder


What we do

APS Support UK's mission is to save and improve the lives of patients with antiphospholipid syndrome by achieving earlier diagnosis and the best possible treatment.
