MP Support

Karl McCartney MP

“I am well aware of the impact skin diseases such as vitiligo and alopecia can have on people and their families. The work Skin Deep Behind the Mask do to help and support sufferers of these conditions is absolutely pivotal and, in turn, I shall remain on hand to support the charity in any way I can.”

Karl McCartney JP MP
Member of Parliament for Lincoln

John Pugh MP

“I warmly welcome the establishment of Skin Deep Behind the Mask as a further, much needed resource to tackle the impact of skin conditions across the UK. There is still a huge amount to be done to diagnose and treat all skin conditions, and I support SDBM as an initiative designed to provide a collective effort towards campaigning and providing support and information for clinicians, individuals, and carers whose lives will all be improved by further efforts in this area.”

John Pugh, MP
Member of Parliament for Southport

Sir Edward Leigh MP

“Working to improve the lives of skin disease sufferers and their carers/families, is highly commendable. The function and importance of caring for our skin can, as you say, be overlooked. Rarely will we read that the prevalence of skin disease exceeds that of cancer. ‘Skin Deep Behind the Mask’ has contributed to highlighting this fact.”

Sir Edward Leigh, MP
Member of Parliament for Gainsborough


"As a member of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Skin, I am all too familiar with the pain and suffering endured by many skin disease patients. Although significant progress has been made, in areas such as training in the diagnosis of skin diseases, much still needs to be done. Skin Deep Behind the Mask is the first organisation that I am aware of that aims to provide support for all types of skin disease patients. It is such a pleasure to lend my support."

Baroness Masham of Ilton

The prevalence of skin disease exceeds that of obesity, hypertension, or cancer. Despite skin being the largest organ of the human body, dermatological research remains one of the most under funded areas of medicine. In a world where society has an increasing preoccupation with image and it’s importance to every aspect of a person’s life, sufferers of skin diseases are feeling and being more marginalised and isolated than ever.
