Helpline: 01252 542029
We provide information and support of the highest quality relating to foods and other triggers such as latex, drugs and insect stings.
Our ultimate aim is to create a safe environment for all people with allergies by educating the food industry, schools, nurses, colleges, health professionals and other key audiences. Our focus is on medical facts, food labelling, risk reduction and allergen management.
We run a helpline service five days a week, provides patient representation and, of course, we campaign!
We also provide tailored membership services for affected individuals, healthcare professionals and also have a corporate membership programme.
The Anaphylaxis Campaign has been certified as a producer of reliable health and social care information by The Information Standard.
To gain the certification, the Anaphylaxis Campaign has had to demonstrate that the systems and methods we use to produce our materials are robust and result in material that is accurate, accessible, impartial, balanced, based on evidence and well-written. We have been successfully audited for our first year’s Info Standard work
So far eight of our factsheets can carry the Information Standard mark – these are the ‘Peanut Allergy and Treenut Allergy’ , ‘Anaphylaxis in the early years setting’ , Anaphylaxis the Facts, Cow's milk allergy ,Lupin, Sesame and Mustard. All our factsheets will go through the certification process over the next two and a half years.
The Information Standard is a certification scheme for health and social care information. It has been established by the Department of Health to help patients and the public make informed choices about their lifestyle, their condition and their options for treatment and care.
About 50,000 organisations produce health and social care information for the public in England and some people can feel overwhelmed by the volume of material and be unsure what to trust. The Information Standard has been introduced to fulfil the need for a “quality filter” to help people decide which information is trustworthy. It provides a recognised “quality mark” which indicates that an organisation is a reliable source of health and social care information.
