Support & Advice Local Support Groups Nottingham Welcome to the Nottingham Support Group. We are a new group for 2022 and look forward to seeing you soon. We know connecting with others going through a similar situation can be really helpful when coming to terms with our own alopecia journey, so if you are looking for some support, please do reach out. What happens at a Group? We meet up to talk, discuss ideas and support each other. We think this helps our members deal with their condition.

Alice's link to alopecia: I’ve had alopecia since I was little and have been on a real journey, but now feel in a place where I can help and support others. I feel really passionate about raising awareness of alopecia and feel really excited to be setting up a group so that I can connect with other people. The group will be a safe space for people to share their experiences and support one another as living with alopecia is tough and we need to feel connected to others who know how it feels.
