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.
We are registered as a charity in England and Wales and in Scotland. We are dedicated to improving the quality of life of people with eczema and their carers.
Our Helpline is the first point of contact for anyone affected by eczema, providing support and guidance on eczema management and treatment. The National Eczema Society has produced a number of information packs to help teachers promote better understanding of the condition and how it affects children with eczema.
Currently, there is no cure for eczema. Finding a cure would significantly transform the lives of over 6 million sufferers in the UK, of which 15-20% are school children. The National Eczema Society supports funding research into eczema.
The Regional Support groups are independent of the National Eczema Society and therefore the Society has no responsibility for them, nor will the views of groups necessarily reflect those of the Society.
