Opportunities to Get Involved

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.

Are you aged 21 or under, living with psoriasis and based in London? Share your experiences with ITV London News for a World Psoriasis Day feature - EXTERNAL OPPORTUNITY

ITV London News is looking for someone aged 21 or under, who is based in London, to be interviewed about their experiences as a young person living with psoriasis. The feature is set to be broadcast on World Psoriasis Day (Monday 29th October) and will focus on the challenges that young people face while living with, and managing, their psoriasis.

The news team would seek to conduct the interview at your home, and a parent can also be present if you wish. Approximately 1 hour of your time will be needed.

If you're interested in taking part and sharing your experiences, or you'd like more information about the opportunity, please contact us at mail@psoriasis-association.org.uk

Share your experiences of the psychological impact of psoriasis with BBC Radio 5 Live - EXTERNAL OPPORTUNITY

BBC Radio 5 live is looking to speak to someone who either is, or historically has, struggled to cope with the psychological impact of living with psoriasis for an upcoming feature on '5 Live Investigates'. This is an hour long investigative programme that goes out on a Sunday morning at 11am on Radio 5 live.

The programme being produced focuses on psychodermatology. It will set out the importance of the service, how necessary it is for patients, and explore where provision across the UK could improve.

As part of this, a 5 live reporter is really keen to speak to people with experience of needing psychological support for psoriasis over the next couple of weeks.

If you're interested in taking part and sharing your experiences, or you'd like more information about the opportunity, please contact us at mail@psoriasis-association.org.uk

Share your experiences of psoriasis in a video for the British Association of Dermatologists new pubic-facing website - EXTERNAL OPPORTUNITY

The British Association of Dermatologists (BAD) is looking to speak to people with psoriasis who might be willing to go to London for a few hours, to film a short video to go on their new public-facing website. 

The BAD would like volunteers to talk about their journey, from when symptoms first appeared through to the present day, including their treatment pathway (who did you see? what sorts of treatments have you tried? what has helped?) and also the impact it has had on your life (both physically and emotionally, however mild or severe).

Each edited video will last about 3 minutes. Volunteers don't need to be 'media trained' or have any experience of being filmed, the BAD just wants honest accounts from relatable people about their experience of psoriasis (and other conditions which affect the skin), and seeking treatment, both positive and negative. ​​

Participants who are filmed will receive £50 as thanks, and travel costs will be reimbursed. Patient support groups/charities (such as The Psoriasis Association) who connect the BAD with a patient who is filmed will also receive a donation of £25.

Anyone interested in learning more, with no obligation to take part, can contact Nina or Matt in the BAD Communications Team at comms@bad.org.uk, or on 0207 391 6084.

Share your experiences of living with psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis through our '50 for 50' project! PSORIASIS ASSOCIATION OPPORTUNITY

As part of our 50th Anniversary celebrations, we'd like to share your story!

We have just entered our 50th year here at the Psoriasis Association! A key part of our work over the last half a century has been to raise awareness of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, and help give a voice to people who live with both conditions. As such, we thought 'what better way to celebrate our 50th year than by sharing 50 people's stories of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis?'

We plan on sharing your stories on our websites and social media channels, most notably on our Instagram page. We might share some of your stories in our members' magazine, 'Pso' too!

We are looking for...

  • Your story of life with psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis (or both) in your own words
  • 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 taking part and sharing your story, or you'd like more information about the project, please contact us at 
    mail@psoriasis-association.org.uk
