Service description:
The Brittle Bone Society is the sole organisation set up to address the needs of people born with Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) in the UK and Republic of Ireland.

Our charity wants a world in which the needs of people in the UK and the Republic of Ireland living with Osteogenesis Imperfecta are understood, respected and fully met.

When people live with a rare and complex health issue like OI, it is easy to feel alone and isolated. 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.
