There are many ways that you can help to raise awareness of lupus within the community:
LUPUS UK Publicity MaterialsWe have a wide range of publicity materials to help you raise awareness of lupus in your workplace, school, hospital and or local community. The full range (including bookmarks, leaflets, posters, stickers, badges and more) is available free of charge and can be viewed in our Publicity Leaflet which you can download by clicking the button.
Adopt a HospitalYou could 'Adopt a Hospital' for Lupus Awareness Month and beyond by ordering the Display Stand and Bookmarks for display in your local hospital, rheumatology/lupus clinic. We would encourage you to keep in touch with these locations and ensure that the stand is always on display and there is a sufficient supply of leaflets. Please also try to get some of these boards located in your local shops, libraries, bookstores and any other location. Each board comes with a supply of bookmarks so just stand it up and insert the bookmarks - it just might be a good idea to ask first.
Let's ensure lupus awareness is all year round!
