SOFT has strong links with the medical profession, including several professional medical advisers.

SOFT provides help and information for families after a diagnosis of one of these conditions. Families are put in touch with befrienders who are willing to listen and share their experiences.

SOFT publishes a range of free literature and a newsletter.
