Andrea's link with alopecia:
Andrea has had alopecia for over thirty-eight years and currently has alopecia areata.

From Andrea:
"Hi my name is Andrea Craig, I am 55 yrs old and have had Alopecia for 38 years.  I have been through all the stages and I currently have Alopecia Areata.  I am a good listener and I would like to pass on some help to others who are going through alopecia, as it's a journey of ups and downs."

Pauline's link with alopecia:
Pauline has had alopecia for over seven years and currently has androgenetic alopecia and lichen planus.

From Pauline:
"Having been on an Alopecia journey for some years, I am now much more confident about managing my condition and have developed little strategies which help me cope. I am more comfortable talking about this to others and if my experience can help others, I would be happy to help."

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 Andrea and Pauline below:
  • Andrea has her telephone number advertised and is happy to receive a telephone call and provide a listening ear between 6pm and 9pm.
  • Pauline does not have her telephone number advertised but is happy to provide a listening ear at a time arranged via email (between 6pm and 8pm).
  • Andrea 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 Andrea 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.

Suggestions, Comments, Compliments, Complaints?
