Eczema Outreach Support

Set-up in 2011 by the mother of a young girl suffering from severe atopic dermatitis, EOS delivers the only 1-1 emotional and practical support service to families with eczema. We aim to:

  1. Provide personalised support to the children and their families at an early stage: welcome packs; 1-1 emotional and practical support; advocacy meetings; “High 5 Club” resources and workshops, “XY Club” (projects and meet-ups for teens), pen-pal scheme and self-management tools.
  2. Offer a community of peers: 3 large events each year, local group meetings and an online community.
  3. Educate others: awareness workshops in schools; Heath Visitors sessions and campaigns.

The charity is planning to expand and support families across the UK in the near future. Please visit our website for our latest news or [email protected].
