The Aims of Allergy UK Allergy UK is a national medical charity established to represent the views and needs of people with allergy, food intolerance and chemical sensitivity.
We aim to do this by:
Promoting wellbeing for people with allergy, food intolerance and chemical sensitivity by way of knowledge and support via counselling and befriending. Empowering people with allergy, food intolerance and chemical sensitivity to take control of and manage their condition. Enabling people with allergy, food intolerance and chemical sensitivity to receive appropriate diagnosis and treatment through education of healthcare professionals and the provision of dedicated services. Educating corporate bodies in the need for products suitable for allergy food intolerance and chemical sensitivity sufferers. Conducting on-going medical and social research into the causes and impact of allergy, food intolerance and chemical sensitivity. Who is involved The British Allergy Foundation was formed as a registered charity in 1991 by a group of leading medical specialists determined to improve awareness, management and treatment of allergy. In May 2002 the operational name of the Foundation was changed to Allergy UK.
The Charity is managed by the Board of Trustees who deal with all the business aspects of the organisation. All decisions on medical and scientific matters in which the Foundation is involved are made by the Health Advisory Panel. Members of this panel include leading allergists, dermatologists, immunologists, paediatricians, GPs, nurses and dieticians.
1 in 3 of the UK population are affected by allergies at some point in their lives. The numbers are rising, yet few national resources are allocated into the diagnosis and treatment of this multi organ disease.
