Some sun can be good for us, helping the body to create vitamin D and give us a feeling of general wellbeing.
If we over-do our sun exposure however, this can cause permanent damage to our skin and is the main cause of skin cancer, including melanoma.
See the displays on Sun Awareness in our libraries showing posters and leaflets reminding everyone of sensible precautions. All are available for you to use with your service users.
Request leaflets via our Health Promotion webpage or contact us for more information.
