Our Aims

Alopecia Awareness has become a recognised support network, we have been a member of the Skin Care Campaign since early 2005 and recently gained charity status!.

By raising awareness we aim to create a better understanding. We hope to work alongside local GP's, hospitals, schools and colleges to make people aware of the fact that this condition has more of an affect on an individual than losing their hair. We will work closely with other established groups and hope to become the backbone of support for people with alopecia nationwide.

Main Organisation Aims:

To establish support groups throughout the United Kingdom that will generate the opportunity to provide education on alopecia, how to live with alopecia and promote positive well being to the individual and show them ways of supporting themselves, also to aid further research into the condition and different kinds of treatment.

To promote awareness through various organised events, as well as promoting the help and information we can offer through the media (i.e. newspapers, magazines, radio and TV). We aim to create links with the medical profession and help continue the research into new treatments.

To provide help and support to any individual suffering from hair loss without distinction of sex, sexual orientation, race or political/religious beliefs and any other opinions. We aim to provide the same support to all individuals experiencing hair loss, whether that hair loss be a result of alopecia, cancer treatments or any other condition that has the same symptoms. We aim to provide friends and family of sufferers with helpful advice and information which will allow them to support their loved ones.

We want to make the process of obtaining wigs and treatment more accessible by making everyone aware of where to go and who to see. We want to make a difference by providing support before and after diagnosis.

To provide up to date and accurate information on the current state of research into the condition as well as any new treatments.

To provide around the clock support for any sufferer in the UK and Ireland.

It may look exactly the same but a lot of work has gone into upgrading the Alopecia Awareness website to make it more adaptable and manageable so that we can keep you up to date with the latest information.
