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.

George the Sun Safe Superstar
This rhyming and wonderfully illustrated children's book has been written by Skcin to help children learn about the importance of sun safety and key sun safe messaging in a fun and engaging way. Used nationally within our Sun Safe School's and Nurseries accreditation schemes, the book has proved hugely popular with children of both pre-school and primary school age.
Courtesy of AXA PPP Healthcare, the book has now been animated and voiced by celebrity Mum, Jenny Frost, so it can be enjoyed online by all.
