Sun Awareness Week

Sun Awareness week is the kick-off to our summer-long Sun Awareness campaign. We use this week to re-enforce the need for sun protection across the UK and inspire people to raise awareness themselves!

Sun Awareness Week 2025 will be from 12 May to 18 May. Our focus this year is around raising awareness of non-melanoma skin cancer and best practices for people to check their skin for this very common type of skin cancer.
