Welcome to the Yorkshire Children’s group. We run two groups a year and it’s a great opportunity to meet other families affected by alopecia.

What happens at the group?

We have done visits to local attractions such as Tropical World, a Treasure Trail in the World Heritage Village of Saltaire and sometimes we host a group in hired space and provide lots of fun and games! Watch this space for what's to come!

Group dates:

The standard group meetings are currently paused. However, Alopecia UK is running events for children up to the age of 12 as part of our National Lottery Community Fund project. You can find details of our upcoming children's events here

    Holly is happy to answer any questions about the group and provide a listening ear at a time arranged by email. Please be aware that any questions Holly is unable to answer will be sent on to staff at Alopecia UK.
    Support group leads are not professional counsellors but people who have personal experiences with alopecia and, along with members of the support group can help to give insight and advice on living and dealing with alopecia on a day to day basis. 
    Please note that 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.

    Holly's link with alopecia: 

    Hi, I'm Holly. Welcome! I run the Yorkshire Children's Alopecia UK Support Group. As a mum to a daughter with Alopecia Universalis, it is really important to me to facilitate connection, not only for children with alopecia, but also for the parents of children with alopecia. It can be difficult to navigate at times, but together as a family we focus on the positive and would love to share this with you and your family.
