Applicants are expected to demonstrate the value of the project to dermatology

Awards are claimed by authorised finance departments submitting a single invoice for the full amount

A scientific and a simple lay report to be submitted upon completion

The British Skin Foundation’s support to be mentioned in any relevant papers or presentations and copies to be forwarded to the BSF office

Why donate to us?

Sixty percent of British people currently suffer from or have suffered with a skin disease at some point during their lifetime. Some skin conditions are manageable, others are severe enough to kill. We are here to help change that.

We raise money to fund research for cures for skin disease and skin cancer, but research doesn't fund itself.

We are the UK's only charity dedicated to skin research, and all of our donations and fundraising events are crucial to enabling us to continue our work.

We have supported more than 300 research projects and awarded £15 million in funding across all skin diseases including eczema, psoriasis and many more.

Help us find a cure today.
