We know that when you are living with alopecia it can be incredibly beneficial to meet others who are going through a similar situation. Connecting with others who are experiencing hair loss can be life-changing in the way we are able to manage our feelings on our own alopecia journey.

Our monthly online support groups offer a safe and supportive space for adults from across the UK to get-together, share feelings, ask questions and give and receive advice and peer support. These groups can also be a great opportunity for people who do not have a local group in their area to meet others affected by alopecia.

To keep the meetings running in the best possible way for the people attending, we need 2-4 volunteers to help facilitate small Zoom 'rooms' of 5-10 people.

Meetings take place monthly, alternating between a weekday afternoon (1-2pm) and a weekday evening (8-9pm). Volunteers would be asked if they'd prefer to lead afternoon or evening sessions.

In a nutshell, our Adults' Online Meeting Group Leaders do 3 things:

  • Lead or co-lead 1 support group per month or every other month. Groups last for 1 hour.

  • Share AUK information and promote the safety and wellbeing of group members.
