Providing support and information to the UK anorectal malformation community.

What we do

Max’s Trust provides support and information to adults, children and families who are affected by anorectal malformations in the UK. We also fundraise, hold events and conferences and raise awareness.

Max Finnigan

Max was born with an anorectal malformation in 2017. His sudden death when he was 17 months old inspired the creation of the UK’s first anorectal malformation charity, by his parents Cassie and John.


Anorectal malformations are where the anus and rectum don’t develop properly. A congenital condition it happens in early pregnancy while the baby is still developing and affects 1 in 4,000 to 5,000 births.
