Volunteer/Awareness Opportunities

There are often opportunities to help raise awareness of psoriasis, contribute to projects and initiatives, and share your experiences.

Listed below are various opportunities that the Psoriasis Association, or other organisations, are looking for people to get involved with. If you are interested in getting involved in psoriasis research, please see our Research pages.

Share your story with us

Are you inspired by other people's stories and interested in sharing your own experiences of psoriasis and/or psoriatic arthritis? Would you like your story to be featured on our website, and on our social media channels?

We are looking for...

  • Your story of life with psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis (or both) in your own words OR you can take part in a short Q&A (we can send you the questions via email)
  • Ideally 400 words or less (if you want to write more, that's fine too)
  • A photo of yourself to accompany your story (you can provide as many photos as you like)

  • If you're interested in sharing your story or taking part in a Q&A, please contact us at

Become a media contact

We often receive requests from journalists at newspapers and magazines, or production staff at TV companies looking for case studies. Sometimes we also contact the media ourselves to raise awareness of Psoriasis Association events and achievements. If you’d be willing to share your experiences of psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis and raise awareness through the media, let us know.

Review our information

We're committed to producing high quality information about psoriasis and receiving feedback from people living with the condition is key to ensuring our information is accessible and easy to understand.

We regularly produce new information sheets and leaflets about psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis and their treatments and we are looking for people based in the UK who would like to feedback on our new and existing information.

Volunteer to be an event speaker

Occasionally we need people with psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis to share their experiences at an event such as a conference or lecture, support group or meeting. If you might be interested in any opportunities to tell an audience about your psoriasis let us know.

Join a consultation panel

Join a consultation panel if you’re happy to be contacted to offer your opinion or comment on anything from our own services and literature to taking part in industry or academic initiatives.

Distribute our posters or leaflets

If you’d like to take our literature into your local GP surgery or Dermatology clinic, do let us know and we can send you some information to distribute.

Join our Research Network

To receive emails with opportunities to take part in or to help shape psoriasis research sign up to our Research Network. Please note, these opportunities may come from third parties e.g. academic researchers as well as from the Psoriasis Association.

Learn more about the Research Network.

We are always looking for volunteers who would like to help us with our work whether this is by becoming a media contact, reviewing our information or speaking at events or conferences.
