Coronavirus support funding success

National Eczema Society is very pleased to have received vital new funding from the Coronavirus Community Support Fund. This award allows us to continue operating our Helpline service and support people with eczema and their families over the coming months. Calls to our confidential Helpline are free and the service is open 10am-4pm weekdays. We provide information, advice and a listening ear and we have been busier than ever supporting people with the additional challenges and worries of managing their eczema during the pandemic.

Like many charities, National Eczema Society has experienced a big drop in income from some traditional fundraising activities, such as the London Marathon, as a result of coronavirus. This new funding enables us to maintain our services while we work hard to develop other funding opportunities.

The Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by The National Lottery Community Fund, was created to help third sector organisations continue to deliver much needed information and support during the ongoing crisis. We are grateful to the Government for making this possible.

To contact our Helpline, call 0800 448 0818 or email helpline@eczema.org. Our team of staff and nurse advisers are here to help.
