Does someone you love have a severe allergy?
Are you an allergic individual or the parent of an allergic child who feels comfortable managing your allergies without the support our Membership programme provides?
We need your support to help others living with severe allergies.
Check out our stories area to see who you can help and why our work is so important.
Did you know…?
- 120,000 individuals have an episode of anaphylaxis requiring A&E attendance each year
Repeated reactions are seen in about 50% of those with a diagnosed food allergy despite their efforts to avoid the foods to which they react.
- Children who are allergic to food are often found to be suffering from anxiety and are increasingly lonelier. One allergic child out of five never attends peers’ parties.
- Hospital admissions in the UK due to food allergies have increased by 500% since 1990.
We need your help to improve these grim figures. By joining as a Friend, you make our voice that much louder and will help us as we work with food manufacturers, government agencies, and the medical community keep allergic people safe.
