This week we are celebrating National Volunteers’ Week (1-7 June) and thanking all our amazing volunteers for the time they give to DEBRA. We couldn’t fight EB without them.

In 2021 our volunteers gave over 335,000 of their time. Every hour they spend sorting donations, chatting to customers, creating window displays, helping teams in our offices, and much more makes a real difference.

Their support means we can continue to provide vital support services to people living with EB, an enhanced EB healthcare service in partnership with the NHS and invest in life-changing EB research.


I want to make a difference; I enjoy working with the customers and nothing gives me more pleasure than to give to those in need.
