Why donate to us?

There are eight million people living with a skin disease in the UK. Some 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 260 research projects and awarded more than £8m in funding across all skin diseases including eczema, psoriasis and many more.

Every penny raised or donated by you goes straight into funding research, so help us find a cure today.
