Partnering with Debra

At Debra one of our core values is Together; we know we are stronger in partnership.

Through championing this value we have developed many different ways of working with partners. Take a look at the examples below and see which best suits your ambitions.

We also know all companies, and therefore all partnerships, are unique. If you want to discuss something a bit different to what we’ve done before, then please do get in touch. Our partnerships team are also committed to our other values.

How can we work together?

Our partnerships team are also committed to our other values – Integrity, Boldness, Passion and being Person-Centred in how we work.

Staff fundraising or “Charity of the Year” partnerships

Host memorable events, take on inspiring challenges, boost company culture and camaraderie, all while raising vital funds to support Debra.

Your company could host a series of engaging staff fundraising activities over the course of a year, or several years. And every fundraising activity has the added benefit of raising awareness for EB.

We will support you with partnership planning, engaging your staff, providing fundraising ideas, donation details, fundraising materials and packs, internal communications and more.

Strategic partnership: align your company’s strategic objectives with our own strategy

Through committing your resources and with cross-team support from Debra, you can play a key role for people impacted by EB.

Through a corporate gift, or combination of donation and staff fundraising, your company could fund or develop a specific area of Debra’s work.

Brand and commercial partnerships

Use the power of your brand to support Debra. You could take a hero product to the next level by selling it ‘in aid of Debra’, with each item sold generating a donation to Debra. Or you could run a campaign, supported by Debra, to raise awareness of EB.

However you choose to work with us, by aligning our brand with your own you’ll be contributing to our goals, while showing your audiences you understand the importance of uniting for change for everyone with skin as fragile as a butterfly wing.

For brand partnerships using our logo externally, we will provide expert communications and media support to get your campaign off the ground, as well as support from our team.
