Sadly, due to lack of funding, Action Against Allergy (Registered Charity No.276637) had to close down in August 2020.  The website and any email address associated with it are no longer monitored.

However, as this website contains a wealth of information to help all those with allergic conditions, much of which remains active and relevant, it will continue to be available for the immediate future. We hope that you are able to find the help you are looking for.
