Summary of our charity: Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) is a group of genetic skin conditions that cause the skin to blister and tear at the slightest touch. Those born with EB have skin so fragile they are called 'butterfly children' – their skin is quite simply as fragile as the wing of a butterfly. There is currently no known cure for EB. At DEBRA, our work is focused on funding research to change this, while also supporting people living with EB to enhance their quality of life through improved healthcare, access to information and respite care.

Young Epilepsy is a national charity whose focus is providing a range of services for children with epilepsy and other associated conditions.
When parents and carers have had the diagnosis from the doctor, often without explanation on how it will impact family life - we take time to explain what epilepsy is, how the condition can be managed and how healthcare workers, teachers, friends and family can work together to give the support that is needed using specific resources that we provide. We focus exclusively on supporting children and young people.
