About LUPUS UK

Our Structure

We're the national charity helping people with the presently incurable immune system illness lupus. We support some 6,000 members through our Regional Groups and advise many others on the symptoms prior to diagnosis.

Who we are

The Trustees

Managing the charity's finances and ensuring LUPUS UK operates within the requirements of UK charity law. The Trustees govern the charity and meet four times in each year.

The Grants Committee

Considers applications to the charity for research and other grant funding, taking expert advice where required from UK and other sources.

Medical Advisory Panel

LUPUS UK has appointed twelve prominent lupus specialists to advise on medical issues and on occasion to give expert opinion on grant applications which by their very nature are often scientific and complex. The twelve specialists cover a wide range of experience in lupus and allied conditions, and between them form an important part of the charity's strengths.
