Anaphylaxis UK's Vision

A brighter future for people living with serious allergies.


Our mission is to create a safe environment for everyone with serious allergies by working with and educating the food industry, schools, pre-schools, colleges, health professionals and other key groups.


  • Information you can trust - Anaphylaxis UK is a leading expert on serious allergies. Our clinical and scientific panel provide essential insight into health and scientific issues related to serious allergies, and associated research and advice on related policies and activities. This deep-level knowledge and scientific rigour bolsters all the information we provide, creating a resource and bank of knowledge that people can understand and trust.
  • Someone to lean on - People come to Anaphylaxis UK during turbulent times in their lives. They or a loved one may have been recently diagnosed or have had a serious allergic reaction, or have experienced bereavement due to anaphylaxis. They’re feeling frightened, isolated, overwhelmed and confused. Anaphylaxis UK is somewhere people can go to, not just for information, but for someone to lean on. Our work provides a sense of community to those that feel alone in their struggle against serious allergies.
  • A brighter future - Living with a serious allergy has a huge impact on every facet of life. From eating in schools to going on holiday, what are day-to-day activities for most people can present challenges for those at risk of a serious allergic reaction. However, we believe that with the right knowledge and support, the future is brighter for those living with serious allergies.
