- Despite affecting 3-7% of U.K. schoolchildren (of whom up to half will continue to have symptoms in adulthood), ADHD remains a poorly understood condition by the general public.
- For more than 20 years, ADDISS has been working to improve awareness and understanding of ADHD by providing information, training, and support to sufferers of ADHD, their parents and carers, and healthcare professionals.
- The charity supports a multi-disciplinary assessment and treatment protocol, including education and behavioural interventions, with or without medication. By signing up to Savoo and selecting ADDISS as your charity, they will receive free donations every time you shop online.

Learn more about ADDISS
ADDISS, the Attention Deficit Disorder Information and Support Service, is a U.K.-based charity that supports individuals and families affected by Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and related conditions. This organisation is crucial in raising awareness about ADHD, offering information, resources, and guidance to those living with the condition and professionals working in the field. ADDISS provides various services, including helplines, workshops, and publications, to empower individuals to understand better and manage ADHD. They also advocate for improved recognition and support for ADHD in schools, workplaces, and the broader community, contributing to a more inclusive and informed society for those dealing with ADHD.
How they support: Local support groups
ADDISS, in consultation with several other ADHD support groups in the U.K., leads a support group programme called The ADDISS Affiliation Programme. Its aim is to make sure that those affected by ADHD are able to feel supported, as well as be provided with consistent and accurate information on all the aspects of ADHD. The support groups work to improve the standard of information surrounding the condition and help those who attend.
Ways you can help: Go to an ADHD Conference
During special periods, such as ADHD Awareness Month, as well as throughout the year, ADDISS holds conferences and events all across the U.K. The aim of these events is to help combat the stigma associated with ADHD and show people how they can tell the difference between a myth and a fact. For more information on an event near you, make sure to check out the ADDISS website.
