How to apply for a support grant

To apply for a support grant you must be a DEBRA member – membership is free and can be completed at the time of your grant application.

DEBRA members of all ages living with any type of EB (including close family members or carers) are welcome to apply. Grant applications are not means tested.

How to make an application for a DEBRA support grant

A DEBRA Community Support Grant request form must be completed in full for emergency funding grants and attendance of events grants. To apply for these funds, please contact your local EB Community Support Manager. Grant applications need to be supported by a recommendation from a healthcare professional or a member of the DEBRA EB Community Support Team.

Available funding and the decision-making process for grant approval

All categories of community support grants are funded through charitable giving. The amount available for support grants may vary each year. With the budget in mind, an assessment of priority will be undertaken by the DEBRA Community Support Team and the Trustee Board.
