Welcome to Vitiligo Support UK.  We are a patient support charity in the UK, providing free, constantly updated and user-friendly information and support to all those with vitiligo and their family and friends.

  • Are you a phototherapy patient in Scotland or interested in looking at handy advice about phototherapy treatment?  Take a look at the ‘Patients’ area on the useful site www.photonet.scot.nhs.uk   for more information on Narrowband UVB and the ‘Do’ and ‘Don’t’ aspects of treatment

  • Researchers from the Centre for Appearance Research at UWE Bristol are looking for people with vitiligo who are experiencing psychological / social difficulties related to looking different, to test ACT It Out, a prototype mobile app. ACT It Out is designed to help adults (18+) who have any different or unusual appearance live a fulfilling life by doing more of what matters to you and reducing the impact of appearance concerns. The app is based on an evidence-based approach called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, or ACT. ACT It Out was developed by a collaboration of UWE researchers, specialist psychologists and a group of people who have a different appearance.   If you are interested and would like more information, please email Fabio.zucchelli@uwe.ac.uk or call Fabio on 0117 32 83882 (9am-5pm Monday-Friday).
