Yorkshire Children's Group

This is a new group for 2017. This group will be lead by Alopecia UK's management team, Amy and Jen. Amy has run the Birmingham Children's Support Group for the past three years and has recently passed the group over to new leaders, allowing a new group to be formed in her home county of Yorkshire. 

Jen has moved to West Yorkshire to work in Alopecia UK's first office and is keen to support a children's group in the local area. 

Both Amy and Jen have alopecia and hope to inspire and reassure those who come to the kids groups. 

Both will be on hand to offer advice to parents and children and hopefully facilitate lots of fun times!


The last meeting took place on Saturday 9th December 2017.  Please check back again soon for 2018 meeting dates.

We'll have some arts and crafts for kids to get stuck into and we'll have some group games. 

Refreshments and biscuits/fruit will be provided. Given the time of the meeting, you are able to bring a packed lunch if you prefer. 

The group will be a relaxed setting for children and parents to meet others and share experiences. Amy and Jen are keen to ensure that the kids/teens feel comfortable and there will be no pressure to 'join in'. It can be nerve-wracking meeting others for the first time. If your child wishes to sit with Mum or Dad, that's fine. Sometimes it can be enough simply to see others with alopecia. 

Siblings are welcome to attend too. We do ask that you confirm if you will be attending and how many will be in your group. It allows us to keep track of numbers in attendance. 

Please drop us an email to be added to the Yorkshire Kids group distribution list and we'll include you in future communications about meetings. 

We look forward to meeting you in 2017. 

Amy and Jen

A Christmas-themed meeting will definitely involve Christmas crafts, Christmas treats and Christmas games. Christmas jumpers will be encouraged! (Amy is a bit of a Christmas nut - expect festive fun!)
