The Vitiligo Society

The Vitiligo Society is a well-established UK based charity that began its work in 1984. Run by a small board of trustees, we are dedicated to supporting, campaigning and raising awareness of Vitiligo, which affects 1% of the world’s population.

Over the years, the Society has established a strong reputation for its medical expertise. Funding has been given for research projects with the aim of establishing and understanding the causes of Vitiligo along with finding safe and effective treatments.

Throughout the year, the charity hosts a series of events including the Vitiligo Society open day. Held at their London head office, it’s a day for members (and non-members) to come together for an informative and interactive day that brings together medical experts from various professions, including Dermatology. The society also holds a monthly parent support group, which provides support to those who have children living with the condition.

As part of our 2017 initiative, the charity have become more active on social media, connecting daily with followers and sharing stories and information on various newsfeeds.

The Vitiligo Society is a registered charity. It is not statutory funded and relies on donations and memberships to be able to do its work.
