More than £2.4 million has been put towards research into skin cancer, a further £870,000 towards Psoriasis and £1 million towards projects looking at Eczema. Work has also been funded which deals with some less common conditions such as Ichthyosis, Vitiligo and Alopecia.

The BSF has also funded some exciting work in partnership with patient support groups such as the National Eczema Society, the Vitiligo Society and the Ichthyosis Support Group, as well as professional dermatological groups including the British Society for Paediatric Dermatology, British Contact Dermatitis Society and the British Photodermatology Group.

Why donate to us?

Sixty percent of British people currently suffer from or have suffered with a skin disease at some point during their lifetime. Some skin conditions are manageable, others are severe enough to kill. We are here to help change that.

We raise money to fund research for cures for skin disease and skin cancer, but research doesn't fund itself.

We are the UK's only charity dedicated to skin research, and all of our donations and fundraising events are crucial to enabling us to continue our work.

We have supported more than 300 research projects and awarded £15 million in funding across all skin diseases including eczema, psoriasis and many more.

Help us find a cure today.
