The British Skin Foundation launched in 1996 and since then has aimed to fund research for cures for skin disease and skin cancer. Finding cures are important but raising awareness is another important priority for the Charity and they are continually fighting for institutional change to help skin disease sufferers.
BSF encourage people to open up and share their experiences with one another so they don’t have to suffer alone. They work closely with the British Association of Dermatologists since 2009 that helps the BSF reach the position they are in today. While they are getting closer to achieving their goals as a Charity, there is still a long way to go. Some skin diseases are manageable but others are dangerous enough to kill so they still need your generosity to fund more advanced research.
