Visits and support calls

We can meet by phone or face-to-face for emotional and practical support in all 32 counties across Ireland.

Managing life with EB is not easy, which is why we will be by your side, ready to support you through all life’s challenges. We understand EB, what it means to be living with EB, caring for someone with EB, or be bereaved by EB.

Our EB Support Team has a wide range of skills, knowledge and experience to help you in all kinds of everyday ways, either at the comfort of your own home, a place of your choice or by phone.

We provide clear and accurate information about EB as well as support with issues which may impact your everyday life, including benefits, employment, housing, school, emotional support, referrals to specialist healthcare and more.

Emotional and
support calls

We are a non-judgmental service and can provide a listening ear to help you cope with the diverse challenges living with EB can bring.

We understand that these challenges may be unique to your family and specific to living with EB so our support is tailored to your individual circumstances.

Help with a
new diagnosis

If you have recently discovered that your newborn has a suspected case of EB, we want you to know that we are here to offer support.
