Four young people jumping in the air in a field

Teens and young people living with severe food allergies are being encouraged to start a conversation with their peers via a new website that could potentially save their lives. The website was developed under the National Allergy Strategy and operates like an app, allowing young people to develop their own avatar and use it to talk to their friends or others with severe allergies about their experiences.

It includes information on signs and symptoms of allergies, dating when you have a severe allergy and how to use an EpiPen. The site also includes practical information for young people on managing their severe allergy.
