Founded in Dundee in 1968 the Brittle Bone Society is the only UK wide organisation providing support to people affected by the rare bone condition Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI).
Through the Society, families can get in touch with each other and share issues on how to cope. Letters and telephone calls reassure them they are not alone. The Society organises local meetings and an annual conference, which enables families to meet and exchange ideas.
The Society can also give help and advice on benefits, mobility, education, equipment, medical issues including genetics, and other issues associated with OI.
We can also provide short term loan of specialist wheelchairs and other equipment when required.
