Welcome to the Fife Alopecia Support Group!

What happens at the group?

The group is relaxed and informal. We have a general chat at some meetings and we also organise events (for example last Summer we went for afternoon tea) or people to come in and speak to us for example dermatologists, or people to talk about wigs and make-up.

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.
