Meet the team Copy

We have a small but mighty team who work tirelessly to help run the charity and ensure we help as many families and individuals affected by mitochondrial disease as possible.

We work with an amazing team of external providers who also support us with social media, videography, animation, print and design, and a variety of other areas that help keep the charity moving forward. It’s a combined effort by many to help us to continue developing and striving to create a brighter mito future because mito matters.
