Research opportunities for the allergic community

Research into serious allergies can only happen with your support. This can provide the opportunity for you to share your experiences of living with serious allergies or being the parent/carer of a child with serious allergies.

Sign up to our monthly newsletter to be the first to hear about opportunities to get involved with. These could include:

  • completing research surveys  
  • participating in focus groups
  • clinical trials

Research opportunities

Share your parental experience of child anaphylaxis

This study aims to learn from the voices of parents/carers through recording their experience of starting school/nursery/with a childminder and how their child’s food allergy/anaphylaxis was understood and supported. These stories can be shared individually or as part of a group. Study starts July/August 2023 and involves 3 - 4 conversations over the period of a few months online or in person. You will need to be the parent/carer of a child between the ages of 0-8 years who is in either part time childcare provision or full-time school and has received a medical diagnosis for a food allergy and anaphylaxis. If your child is older but you would like to share retrospective stories of your experience this is also welcome. The research aims to support practitioners in health and education to understand the home perspective of living with food allergies and anaphylaxis to improve support for children and families.
