The charity was set up in 2011 by Magali Redding, the mother of a young girl with severe eczema.

 “As the founder of Eczema Outreach Support, I know only too well how hard it can be to have a child with this painful and frustrating condition, and also the difference it can make when you have found someone to turn to.
I remember during tough times, all my daughter and I needed was a listening ear or the opportunity to speak to others in the same boat. Everything we do for families is free and we are passionate about representing our membership’s views to improve services at local and national level.  Our vision is to see families with eczema flourish in a society where they can lead healthy and fulfilled lives.”

– Magali Redding, Founder of Eczema Outreach Support

The charity was originally called Eczema Outreach Scotland and supported families living in Scotland.  In 2018 the charity expanded to support families living in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and became Eczema Outreach Support.

Eczema Outreach Support exists to help families deal with the practical and emotional aspects of having a child with eczema.  We understand the impact the condition can have on the whole family, and we understand how isolating it can feel.

We know that eczema is different for everyone, so our help is tailored to each family’s needs.  We offer a wide range of support, activities and resources to help parents/carers and the child with eczema feel more able to cope with the ups and downs of the condition.

At the heart of our service is the opportunity for families to connect with others in the same situation, get reliable information, and to speak to people who understand.  Please note we don’t offer medical advice, we leave that to the highly-trained medical professionals across the UK.
