As part of Sun Awareness, the British Association of Dermatologists can provide a range of leaflets and posters (see below). Information leaflets about the different types of skin cancer are also available (please select from the options in the 'Skin Cancer' section to the left). If you would like any advice regarding your own Sun Awareness events, please do get in touch.
The British Association of Dermatologists has created a Sun Awareness pack which is available free of charge to most UK addresses.
We offer two different, two-sided leaflets, one on prevention and one on early detection. The early detection leaflet contains our ABCDEasy mole check guide on one side, with step-by-step instructions on how to check your skin on the other side. The prevention leaflet features our sun safety tips on one side, and information of skin types on the other side.
Four different posters based on each side of the two leaflets are also available.
