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.

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.

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

Take part in the London 10k and help raise awareness of psoriasis on the streets of the capital - PSORIASIS ASSOCIATION OPPORTUNITY

The ASICS London 10k is always a great day and we've been lucky over the years to have had so many runners take part on our behalf, wearing those purple vests and t-shirts with pride!

It's a great opportunity to raise awareness of psoriasis at such a high profile event, and enjoy the sights of central London at the same time!

This year's event takes place on Sunday 21st July and we've still got places available in our PsoTeam!

If you'd like to take part, please email us at mail@psoriasis-association.org.uk to register your interest. We'll even waive your entry fee! 

You can find out more about the London 10k by visiting the official event website.

Share your experiences of psoriasis as part of the 'Naturally You' health promotion campaign - EXTERNAL OPPORTUNITY

Naturally You is a health promotion campaign created by Nottingham Trent University students Alice and Reanne in order to educate and raise awareness of conditions which affect the skin. Alice and Reanne both have experience of such conditions themselves - Alice is living with psoriasis, and Reanne with eczema.

Throughout the campaign, they will be appearing at university events as well as sharing facts and different people's stories on social media, aiming to represent as many different skin conditions and treatment paths as possible in order to educate their followers through a behaviour change model of health promotion.

If you would like to share your story as part of the campaign, or you'd simply like to find out more, please visit and follow @naturallyyoucampaign on Instagram.

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
