The Irish Skin Foundation is the national charity supporting people living with all skin conditions in Ireland.
The Irish Skin Foundation was founded in 2011 through the merging of 3 existing patient organisations; the Psoriasis Association of Ireland, the Irish Eczema Society and the Melanoma and Skin Cancer Society - with the purpose of assisting patients with all skin conditions in Ireland.
Our mission is to support and provide information and help to all those affected by a skin condition in Ireland.
The Irish Skin Foundation supports on-going research through our close collaboration with the Charles Institute of Dermatology at UCD - a state of the art centre dedicated to research into skin disease. We provide updates of scientific advances for the treatment of skin conditions through our website, our newsletter and our public events.
