Eczema Outreach Support works with researchers across the UK and beyond.

We take part in steering groups and panels, work with university researchers and with companies developing new eczema treatments

We also work with the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and the Scottish Medicines Consortium (SMC) in the assessment of new treatments. We do all of this to make sure that the experiences and needs of children with eczema and their families are represented

There are lots of opportunities for families with eczema to get involved with research too. 

Exploring Parents’ Experiences of Eczema 

Are you a parent who has an experience with eczema?  

Trainee clinical psychologist Lauren Waples is looking to speak to anyone who has a child under the age of 18 and has experienced either their own or their child’s eczema. She is exploring the impact of eczema on aspects of parenting such as attachment, soothing styles, and wellbeing to better understand how to support families affected by the condition
