SDBM: Our Causes

SKIN DEEP Behind the Mask’s primary objective is to support, empower and enable individuals living with skin disease (along with their families and carers) to help manage their condition and live a fulfilling life.

In particular, we focus on providing integrated services that help people to self-manage their skin condition, improve overall wellbeing and increase their quality of life. The quality of life of people with skin diseases such as psoriasis, atopic eczema and acne can be significantly impaired, such impairment can be greater at times, than life-threatening conditions such as cancers.

SDBM is the only UK charity, which supports people with all types of skin disease.

SDBM is working hard to raise funds in order to provide the following core services:
