How EOS can help you
EOS can help support families who have a child with eczema giving you somewhere to signpost families you feel could benefit from support or meeting others in the same situation. You can also informally refer a family to our service (with the parents/carers’ consent).
We aren’t medical professionals, we leave that bit to you, but we help families with the emotional and practical aspects of having a child with eczema.
We will reinforce the importance of the treatment plan prescribed, help them work out how to fit it into their day-to-day life if they are feeling overwhelmed, be a listening ear when they are on an emotional rollercoaster, and help with understanding triggers, how to get support for their child at school, and a whole lot more!
Through our work supporting families and being the voice of our members in a variety of forums we have built strong relationships with many Dermatologists, Dermatology Nurses, GPS, Psychiatrists and Health Visitors across the UK.
Please note that we are not a statutory service and offer services based on individual circumstances and the charity’s current capacity.
