The British Skin Foundation is the only UK charity that raises money to fund research into all types of skin diseases, including skin cancer. Sixty percent of British people currently suffer from or have suffered with a skin disease at some point during their lifetime. Whilst some skin conditions are manageable, others are severe enough to kill. We are here to help change that by raising money for vital research to help find cures and treatments for common skin conditions like eczema or acne, through to potential killers like malignant melanoma. The British Skin Foundation receives no statutory funding and relies on generous donations from supporters.
We are an independent charity supporting thousands of people who experience tinnitus and advise medical professionals from across the world. We are the primary source of support and information for people with tinnitus in the UK, facilitating an improved quality of life. We aim to encourage prevention through our educational programme and to seek effective treatment for tinnitus through a medical research programme. We seek to provide the most appropriate and expert advice and information free of charge via our confidential freephone helpline on 0800 018 0527. Our vision We want "A world where no one suffers from tinnitus." That is a powerful statement and one we believe is achievable. It is achievable now, to an extent that there are management tools and methods available to enable some not to 'suffer'. However we also want to find better ways to manage tinnitus – and ultimately a cure.

‘If we and the rest of the back-boned animals were to disappear overnight, the rest of the world would get on pretty well. But if the invertebrates were to disappear, the world’s ecosystems would collapse.’ Sir David Attenborough Buglife is the only organisation in Europe devoted to the conservation of all invertebrates. We’re actively working to save Britain’s rarest little animals, everything from bees to beetles, worms to woodlice and jumping spiders to jellyfish. Buglife’s aim is to halt the extinction of invertebrate species and to achieve sustainable populations of invertebrates. We are working hard to achieve this through: – Promoting the environmental importance of invertebrates and raising awareness about the challenges to their survival. – Assisting in the development of legislation and policy that will ensure the conservation of invertebrates. – Developing and disseminating knowledge about how to conserve invertebrates. – Encouraging and supporting invertebrate conservation initiatives by other organisations in the UK, Europe and worldwide. – Undertaking practical conservation projects that will contribute to achieving our aim.
