About Us

The British Dupuytren’s Society is a UK charity founded in 2011 as a patients’ organisation, supported by medical professionals, and working alongside the International Dupuytren Society (IDS).

The Board of Trustees consists entirely of volunteers: two of whom are Dupuytren’s patients, one who has Ledderhose and one who is a Peyronie’s patient, and two Doctors one of whom is a surgeon and the other a radiation oncologist.  As volunteers we are in regular contact via email to discuss the charity, its status, work in progress and new suggestions for projects. The Society also has a panel of volunteer Doctors acting in an advisory capacity.

The British Dupuytren’s Society was founded in August 2011. Our first step was to create our Constitution and Board of Trustees. We are now registered with HMRC for tax-exempt status as a charity, but since our financial turnover does not meet the minimum requirement we cannot yet apply to become a registered charity.
