Children & Young People

We know that meeting others with alopecia can play a huge part in someone’s alopecia journey. Not only can it provide a wealth of peer support and advice, help people feel less alone and understand their feelings are perfectly normal, it also helps reduce anxiety and build confidence. 

In order to support young people with their alopecia journey, we facilitate online meetings via Zoom that provides a unique opportunity for young people to meet others with alopecia in a safe, supportive and informative online space.

Who are these meetings suitable for? 

These meetings are for young people with alopecia ages 13-18.  These meetings are only open to those in the UK. 

For online meetings for others:

Who will host the meeting?

The meetings will be facilitated by an Alopecia UK staff member, along with 1-2 other volunteers.
The discussion and topics will be guided and hosted by other young people with alopecia - the members of our Youth Voice Board.
