Changing Faces

Changing Faces

Changing Faces is the leading UK charity that supports and represents people who have disfigurements to the face, hand or body from any cause. 

We live in a culture where disfigurement is often seen as a medical “problem” that could/should be fixed by surgery or medical intervention. However, surgery alone cannot always remove a disfigurement and can sometimes lead to further complications. Changing Faces helps people to face the challenges of living with a disfigurement and equips them with the appropriate tools to build self-confidence and self-esteem.
