Support & Advice Support Groups Birmingham Children Welcome to Birmingham kids group! We welcome children and families affected by alopecia to meet in a relaxed atmosphere. It’s a great chance for children to meet others with alopecia, and for parents to chat as we know things can be tough on parents too. What happens at a Group? Our meetings are relaxed and informal. We bring along things to keep the children entertained, including crafts and games. We also do some group activities which are a lot of fun and a big hit with the children. Group dates: Date: Time: Location: Extra Meeting Details: We have now tentatively re-opened our support groups, however, it is at the discretion of individual group leads to decide what they feel comfortable delivering in the community, in addition to local COVID-19 guidance given in your area.
