The group meeting is held in a private room used exclusively by group
attendees. Tea, coffee and soft drinks are available free of charge.
Please get in touch with Stewart ahead of a meeting and let him know if you intend to go along so that he can keep track of numbers.
Stewart's link with alopecia:
Stewart's son Ben (age 13) has alopecia. Stewart recognises the benefits of Ben being able to speak to and listen
to other people with alopecia; people who understand how he feels.
Ben's feedback to his Dad was "It's good to know you are not alone".Need Advice or Support Outside of the Group Meetings?
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 both below:
- Stewart has his telephone number advertised and is happy to provide a
listening ear via telephone call if someone phones (Stewart will answer whenever he is able to).
- Stewart is happy to receive support questions from those in his local area and
will answer to the best of his ability based on his own knowledge and
experiences. Please be aware that any questions Stewart is unable to
answer will be sent on to staff at Alopecia UK.
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
