We meet up to talk, discuss ideas and support each other. We think this helps our group members in managing their alopecia. Please do get in touch if you would like more information. Being a new group I welcome any suggestions for feedback to make this group as great as it can be.

    Kerry is happy to answer any questions about the group and provide a listening ear at a time arranged by email. Please be aware that any questions Kerry is unable to answer will be sent on to staff at Alopecia UK.

    Support Group Leads are not professional counsellors but people who have personal experiences with alopecia and, along with members of the support group can help to give insight and advice on living and dealing with alopecia on a day to day basis. 

    Please note that 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.

    Kerry's link with alopecia: 

    "Welcome to the Edinburgh Alopecia UK Support Group! Having lived with androgenetic alopecia and alopecia areata for over twenty years, I appreciate how very unique our individual experiences are, whilst recognising an almost universal need for a robust support network of some kind, in whatever size or construct that might be, to help us not just survive, but thrive! Please do reach out if you are looking for alopecia support, or are looking for support on behalf of someone you care about".
