We love the guys at VeDA , who are based in the USA, but have a really great web site and a wonderful approach to all Balance disorders. We felt it appropriate to provide some links and information about their site, as this may just be of interest or help to you.
Mission, Vision, Values
VeDA Mission – “To support and empower vestibular patients on their journey back to balance”. We couldn’t have said this any better . VeDA Vision – “We envision a world where vestibular disorders are widely understood, rapidly diagnosed, and effectively treated so patients can restore balance and regain life.” Again we share their vision completely. They don’t fund medical research (Whereas The Menieres Society in the UK do), but they make a lot of noise about the importance of education for the world concerning Balance disorders.

On Line Information and Help
The VeDA web site contains a lot of great on line information, not only curated over the last 35 years, but always adding the latest news and views. We recommend visiting this section and browsing through the available information, as it does cover many varieties of balance disorder and we think in a very clear and helpful manner.

Supporters of VeDA
Although VeDA is based in the US, you can join as a supporter/member from allover the world. Brits are especially welcome, as we do of course share the same language and the language of balance disorders, and their challenges, is universal to all of us. As well as a members pack (with a useful “tool kit”), you do gain access to their online members forum, that despite the distance and time zones, could be beneficial. Tried and tested from the UK, members packs arrive through your letter box anywhere in the UK within 7 days – Impressive.

We especially like the modern, “can do” approach from VeDA, where they really do communicate their care for our community and publish what they are achieving on our behalf. Well Done VeDA
