Please get in touch with Rachel ahead of a meeting and let her know if you intend to go along so she can keep track of numbers.

Rachel's link with alopecia:
Rachel has had alopecia for over fifteen years and currently has alopecia universalis.

From Rachel:
"I've suffered with Alopecia since the age of 15. Although at first it was limited to small patches in my eyelashes and eyebrows, and was barely noticeable. I began developing more patches in March 2015. Within a month I had lost all my hair. Before attending my first support group I was nervous and unsure of what to expect, but after my first meeting I felt so reassured to know that there were others who knew exactly how I was feeling. I'd hope that members can find support and reassurance from our group and also share and discuss their experiences and Alopecia journeys if they so choose."

Need Advice or Support Outside of the Group Meetings?
The main role of support group leads is to facilitate, and answer questions about, the group meetings.  Some may offer additional support and you can see what is on offer from Rachel below:
  • Rachel has her telephone number advertised and is happy to provide a listening ear via telephone call if someone phones (currently anytime apart from between 8pm-10pm Mon and Wed - subject to change).
  • Rachel is happy to receive support questions from those in her local area and will answer to the best of her ability based on her own knowledge and experiences.  Please be aware that any questions Rachel is unable to answer will be sent on to staff at Alopecia UK.
Please note that all of 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.  The majority of group leads are not trained health professionals and will be helping from the standpoint of being someone who is affected by alopecia themselves and wanting to reach out and help others.

You can always contact Alopecia UK head office direct during office hours should you have any queries that need a more urgent response.
