Meet The Team

We are a group of scientists, medical communicators, pandemic historians, artists, social media managers, business owners, carers, and patient advocates who are passionate about encouraging the UK population to wear face masks. 


Many of our members work full-time jobs and we are all donating our time and resources to the project; no-one is getting paid for this! 

You can support UK Mask Network by spreading the word, wearing a mask, social distancing, and taking lots of photos of yourself wearing a mask while standing a small distance away from other people.


Tag us on socials, @ukmasknetwork and #ukmasknetwork.

Like we said, we're doing all this for free in our spare time, so you’d like to buy us a coffee (we sure need it!) - feel free to do so here

If you’re looking to join us, please email with the subject line "UKMN Newbie".
