We understand that having a child who is experiencing alopecia can be challenging, not just for the child but also parents (and the wider family). Parents are often able to resolve issues encountered by their child. Unfortunately, alopecia is not something that parents can ‘fix’.

One of the main difficulties of experiencing alopecia can be the many, many questions you and your child will have and the few answers that exist. That is why Alopecia UK is here to help and looking through our website is a great place to start.

We have created resources for parents to help guide you and your child. You can find these here

We also recommend taking a good look through all of the webpages in the ‘Children and Young People’ section of our website. We have lots of resources that can be helpful, including story booklets, animation videos and a Schools Pack that can help with any challenges your child may encounter in their school.
