LOOK AFTER YOUR SKIN
AND STAY SAFE IN THE SUN
At Skcin we are dedicated to preventing
skin cancer through education...
SKIN CANCER IS THE MOST
COMMON CANCER IN THE UK
Skin cancer kills more people in the UK
than Australia - the UV capital of the world!
RATES OF SKIN CANCER
ARE RISING FASTER THAN
ANY OTHER CANCER
and it is now one of the biggest cancer
killers in the 15-34 age group!
ALMOST ALL SKIN CANCERS
ARE CAUSED BY OVER
EXPOSURE TO UV
That means that almost all skin cancers
are preventable by being sun savvy!
THAT'S WHY SKCIN ARE
DEDICATED TO PROMOTING
Through national educational,
accreditation schemes, campaigns,
partnerships and initiatives...
TO REVERSE THE SOARING
RATES OF SKIN CANCER FOR
OUR FUTURE GENERATIONS
Knowledge is power. It's time to make
a change. Education is key, a culture
change is required and that's our mission.
If your child attends either a primary or pre-school setting, please recommend our Sun Safe Schools and/or Sun Safe Nurseries national accreditation schemes. Both initiatives are completely free, comprehensive learning tools available to all primary schools and pre-schools across the UK. If you can encourage just one or more school to get involved in the scheme, all those children will benefit from learning to enjoy the sun safely - not just now, but for the rest of their lives. Both schemes help to ensure that our children are adequately protected against UV during school hours, help schools develop a suitable sun safe policy and most importantly, potentially life saving information is extended to the parents and families of each child - creating a huge reach for our sun safe messaging.
If you would like to find out more about the schemes, please follow the links below. If you would like to crack straight on with getting your child's school on board, please download the following parent information to hand in to your school.
