The Norwegian Williams Syndrome Association (Norsk Forening for Williams Syndrom – NFWS) was established in 1986 and have today approx. 160 members, mostly families but also some supporting members and professionals. The association is nationwide. Since mid-2000, NFWS is chaired by Erik Andersen.
Our vision is:
“People with Williams Syndrome in Norway should have a good life”.
This means that NFWS will work for all people diagnosed with WS – not only members of NFWS.
Annually we arrange a convention for all members and a series of camps with varying themes and audiences. Many members are also organized in sub-groups and do a various of activities together.
