Need Advice or Support Outside of the Group Meetings?
The main role of support group leads is to facilitate, and answer questions about, the group meetings.  Some may offer additional support and you can see what is on offer in contact details. 

Please note that all of our support group leads are volunteers and do this in their spare time.  As such please allow up to a week for replies to emails.  The majority of group leads are not trained health professionals and will be helping from the standpoint of being someone who is affected by alopecia themselves and wanting to reach out and help others.

You can always contact Alopecia UK head office direct during office hours should you have any queries that need a more urgent response.

Suggestions, Comments, Compliments, Complaints?

The information will be used by Alopecia UK to help us understand what works and what doesn't in order that we can support and advise group leads more effectively and develop the Alopecia UK support group network.
