DEBRA Scotland

Did you know that as well as the team based in our head office in Bracknell, we also have a dedicated DEBRA team based in Scotland?

The Scotland fundraising team are busy organising events throughout the year, whether that be the annual Big Sports Quiz Dinner, typically held in Glasgow and attended by Vice-President and Sporting Legend, Graeme Souness, or donning a kilt and joining a Kiltwalk in Glasgow, Aberdeen, Edinburgh, or Dundee spreading awareness about DEBRA and epidermolysis bullosa (EB).

We also have a dedicated person in Scotland to support people living with EB and their carers. We are the national charity for people living with EB in the UK and are committed to supporting the EB community with a range of services intended to enhance quality of life, whether they are members of DEBRA or not. However, becoming a member of DEBRA makes it easier to access our services and exclusive benefits, currently we have just over 150 members living in Scotland. You can apply to become a DEBRA member online, and membership is free; we’re here to support you.

If you are looking to get involved with any fundraising activities based in Scotland, or if you are a DEBRA member who would like to get in touch with the Community Support Team, please reach out to one of our team members below:

Erin Reilly, Community Support Manager

I joined DEBRA in April 2024 and come from a background of working with adults with disabilities for 10 years, firstly as a support worker and then with a specialist social work team. I hope to bring my experience of working with clients with a wide variety of support needs and understanding of the social and health care systems to DEBRA members in Scotland.

Ladies day at grand national

It’s Ladies’ Day, so we’ll be inviting you fine fillies to dress up in your fanciest finery, with spot prizes for outfits, hats, and a few other little surprises.

Our celeb host is TV star and comic Jane McCarry and you can really make a day of it with arrival for our guests from 11am onwards.

There’s lots going on in the course in general with music and entertainment before and after the racing, so it’s the perfect big day and night out – and all for an amazing cause to help EB sufferers and their families.

It’s not even a gamble – good times guaranteed!
