Activity: The Allergy family support project is a three yeart project to support families with allergic children manage their everyday lives. The project has created the Allergy Family Days and the Parent Groups to create points of contact and facilitate exchange of knowledge and experiences.

The Allergy Family Days for Families provides families with children with severe allergies to meet other families in the same situation, gain knowledge and exchange experiences during a long weekend at the Swedish Asthma and Allergy Association allergy-free facility Södergården. The weekend is led by medical and educational teams.

The Parent Groups offer parents who have children with asthma, allergies or other hypersensitivity a local forum where they can meet other allergy parents to support and learn from each other.
