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.

Felicity's link to alopecia: My hair fell out at the age of 13. It was a really difficult time, especially navigating school with hair loss. The hardest part for me was when I had to start wearing a wig. I couldn't even say the word wig, as it felt too real, and I was in denial. It has taken me some time to accept it, but I am now ready to use my experience of alopecia to help support others. If you are looking for a little support in your alopecia journey, please do come along to our meetings. If you have any feedback on this support group please consider leaving it here.Alternatively, if you have any Suggestions, Comments, Compliments or Complaints for the charity please do so here.
