Respite Grant

This is our annual respite grant for 2020. Due to current circumstances, we are broadening our definition of respite to include wellness and recreation and we are relaxing the receipts requirements for this year only. While it is preferable that applications are accompanied by receipts, due to the Covid 19 pandemic we understand this is not practical in most circumstances. If you usually avail of this grant, we would encourage you to still send in your application.

Who can apply?

People affected by EB who reside in the Republic of Ireland.


What can it be used for?

It can be used towards any practical needs that are adding to your hardship as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic and increased social distancing restrictions.
