Who Are SarcoidosisUK?

SarcoidosisUK (previously SILA) was founded in 1997 and has been helping people with sarcoidosis ever since. All members of the Board have personal experience of sarcoidosis.

SarcoidosisUK is a charity funded solely from personal donations – of both time and money. Sarcoidosis is a rare disease and suffers from poor quality information, low levels of support and almost no research into finding a cure. SarcoidosisUK works to change that. Information and support is mostly done by volunteers allowing us to put the vast majority of funds into research.

Our Goals

SarcoidosisUK has four goals:

  1. Information: Providing accurate and detailed information to people with sarcoidosis, their carers, and medical professionals.
  2. Support: We provide emotional support for people with sarcoidosis and their carers by telephone, email, via social media and at our support groups across the UK.
  3. Finding a cure: SarcoidosisUK raises funds and invests them into focused medical research that works directly to finding a cure for sarcoidosis.
  4. Awareness: We recognise the lack of understanding and awareness from both the medical profession and the general public regarding sarcoidosis. We aim to change this.
