Alopecia UK is a national charity working to improve the lives of those affected by all types of hair loss through its aims of Support, Awareness and Research. As well as individual telephone and email support, Alopecia UK has over 30 volunteer-led support groups throughout the UK and facilitates online peer support via social media.
The charity also organises national events, bringing together large numbers of people with alopecia. Peer support can really help people with alopecia to feel less isolated. Alopecia UK raises awareness of alopecia and its psychological impact, to both the general public and healthcare professionals.
