Prader-Willi Syndrome is a rare, genetic disorder affecting one in 15,000 people in the UK. While the condition is characterised by a chronic feeling of hunger and range of cognitive, behavioural and physical issues, every individual’s experience of the condition is unique.
In support of PWS Awareness Month, Consensus Gretton are sharing stories and videos as part of their on-going #PWSandme Campaign which looks beyond PWS as a condition to the people whose lives have been touched by it, with the aim of creating better understanding and awareness.
From what it’s like Living with PWS “through the eyes” of individuals who have PWS, Parenting sons and daughters with PWS at different stage of life and Working with individuals with PWS in a support setting, our campaign covers the good times, the challenges, the moments of joy and pride that lit up each stages of their journey. Their experiences, in their own words.

Through my eyes
Our film explores what it is like to live with PWS, ‘through the eyes’ of different individuals who have the condition, including the variety of daily challenges an individual can face and the impact this can have on their quality of life.
PWS is characterised by an excessive appetite and a range of cognitive, behavioural and emotional challenges; but with the right support, individuals with PWS can lead a happy, fulfilling life. To learn more, watch our ‘What is PWS?’ animation below.
