Support for families living with allergy

On May 15th 2023, the Allergy Summit provided a series of free online talks to help parents and caregivers of a child with food allergies or eczema to gain understanding of their conditions.

Empowering families

The allergy journey can be very difficult to navigate. The summit speakers are all dedicated to empowering families to live well, with allergy.

During the Allergy Summit we listened to short talks from representatives of Anaphylaxis UK and The Sadie Bristow Foundation, as well as from our speakers.
