The aim of the Trust is to provide relief and assistance for those people born, in the United Kingdom, damaged as a result of their mothers having taken the drug thalidomide (as manufactured by Distillers Biochemicals Limited) during their pregnancy. They currently are supporting 470 individuals, each in the main between 47 and 53 years of age who, for the most part, have two or four limbs missing.

They are not a scientific or medical foundation and do not conduct any scientific research. They are solely concerned with dealing with the effects of this one pharmaceutical product that was marketed in Britain between 1958 and 1962.
