    Alice does not have her telephone number advertised but is happy to provide a listening ear via telephone call at a time arranged via email. She is also happy to receive support questions from those in her local area and will answer to the best of her ability based on her own knowledge and experiences.  
    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. 
    Please be aware that any questions Alice is unable to answer will be sent on to staff at Alopecia UK.

    Alice's links with alopecia: 

    I'm Alice and I have had alopecia areata for 13 years. I lost all my hair twice but it grew back each time and I'm lucky that I only have small, easily hidden patches at the moment.

    AA runs in my family - my mum, dad, sister and 8-year old nephew have all had patches too. I volunteered to run this group because I understand how unpredictable, isolating, and distressing alopecia can be.

    I hope that this group will help children (and their parents and even siblings) to make friends, feel less isolated, share knowledge, learn from one another and connect with other group members who have some understanding of what they're going through.
