Our patron

Patrons play an important role by using their profile to help us raise awareness of EDS and the work we do. We were very excited to welcome our new patron, comedian Ellie Taylor, in July 2017. Ellie was inspired to support EDS UK when she saw the struggles of a friend who has EDS.

We are looking forward to working with Ellie and using her creativity and personality to get EDS the attention it needs.

We are also proud to have Coronation Street actor Cherylee Houston as an ambassador. Cherylee became EDS UK’s first patron in 2011.  She made history when she became the first full-time disabled actor on Coronation Street.
