Exciting news! Our new animation film “Talking about alopecia” is now available to watch.

As part of our current development of the Alopecia UK Schools Pack, we have created a short animation film featuring the voices of young people with alopecia. The filming of this animation provided the young people who took part the opportunity to have their say about what they would want their classmates and teachers to know about what it’s like to have alopecia.

Our Schools Pack will be launched in early 2021 but in the meantime we wanted to share the film because, quite honestly, its brilliant and we couldn’t wait!

Why did we create the film?

We wanted the voices of young people to be heard in the Schools Pack. Nobody can get across the experiences of young people with alopecia in schools better than young people themselves!  

How did we make the film?

Over the Summer we ran a series of online animation workshops, collaborating with the wonderful Lydia Hibbert from Young Animators Club. Young people created their own animations and had a chance to talk about what school is like for someone with alopecia.

We are really proud of all the young people who helped to make this film. A huge thank you to all the young people who took part, and to Lydia at Young Animators Club for bringing this to life.

We hope you enjoy the film!
