‚Äč‚ÄčAbout Allergy UK

Allergy UK is the leading national charity dedicated to supporting the estimated 21 million allergy sufferers in the UK.  We provide a dedicated helpline, support network and online forum for those with allergy and intolerance


We also help to educate health care professionals who work with patients with allergic conditions.

Working to make a difference

Allergy UK are continually seeking ways to improve the quality of life for people with allergy and intolerance.  

Here are some of the ways that we can help you find as much information as possible to help manage your condition:



Our helpline provides practical advice on managing your allergy and contact details of your local clinics.


Fact sheets

We provide fact sheets on all common allergies and intolerances, as well as patient information leaflets. All our factsheets are certified as a quality provider of health and social care information by The Information Standard.


GPs and Primary Health Care services

We work closely with GPs and Primary Health Care services by providing up to date information and training in all aspects of allergy. Our Health Advisory Board can assist Primary Care staff needing specialist advice and our helpline advisors, where necessary.


Product Endorsement Schemes 

Our Seal of Approval, The Allergy Friendly Products and the Allergy Friendly Services scheme are there to help consumers find suitable products to help manage their allergy.


Support contacts 

We have a nationwide network of support contacts, who have been through the experience of living or caring for someone with an allergic condition. They are a dedicated group of people happy to offer advice and support to fellow sufferers.


Translation cards

Our translation cards help protect those with food allergies when travelling abroad and are available in 30 languages. The cards contain a tailored allergy alert message, an emergency message, and a card explaining your allergy for restaurants, to help you when eating out.


Food Alerts 

Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.

We are informed of such situations by the Foods Standards Agency and below you will find these Allergy Alerts listed by allergen.

You can also sign up to receive any Allergy Alerts by email.
