What we do
Formed in 1975, The National Eczema Society has two principal aims: first, to provide people with independent and practical advice about treating and managing eczema; secondly, to raise awareness of the needs of those with eczema with healthcare professionals, teachers and the government.
Our Commitment to You
We are committed to making life easier for the 1 in 5 children and 1 in 12 adults who suffer from eczema through providing our Helpline and information services. We rely entirely on general public and company donations to fund our work as well as Membership subscriptions.
Our Helpline is the first point of contact for anyone affected by eczema, providing support and guidance on eczema management and treatment.
Learning to manage your eczema or your child’s is an important part of coping and living with the condition. It is often helpful to meet other people who are in a similar position as they can offer support through personal experience together with practical help and tips. The Society provides access to a network of local support groups.
The National Eczema Society has produced a number of information packs to help teachers promote better understanding of the condition and how if effects children with eczema.
