The Brittle Bone Society

Grants for children and others who have osteogenesis imperfecta (brittle bones). Grants are available to pay towards wheelchairs, specialised equipment, holidays and respite care.

Last updated on 15 August 2019

Who is eligible?

Children and others with osteogenesis imperfecta (brittle bones).

We can supply manual and powered wheelchairs, trikes, buggies and other types of equipment. We do not usually fund higher education fees or 'white goods' e.g. hobs, cookers or fridges, soft furnishings or building works. We can occasionally help with holidays or respite care. We cannot accept applications for retrospective funding.

How to apply?

Applications must be supported by a Letter of Support from a healthcare professional such as an Occupational Therapist or a Physiotherapist. You can download an application form from the website

Call or email the charity if you are not sure of the equipment you need.

Other information

The Brittle Bone Society has a number of Support Groups throughout the UK and Ireland. These are community based groups of people affected by OI. They gather to enjoy each other's company, share information, and experiences and socialise with others who understand the OI story. Contact the Society who can connect you with your local support group.
