If you choose to celebrate #Halloween, have fun – carve the pumpkins, eat the sweets and dress up – but do it sensitively, and think about your costume choices. If your costume mimics a real-life condition, think twice: it could cause hurt and isolation or even bullying. https://t.co/R4u67IAQNq FaceEquality photo

"I think you can change the way beauty is, and you can show people your scars and I think it’s really special to stand up for that" - Princess Eugenie, speaking ahead of her wedding last week. Congratulations to the happy couple from Changing Faces! https://t.co/WsC3t1wDxR

Halloween is less than two weeks away: if you choose to celebrate it, have fun – carve the pumpkins, eat the sweets and dress up – but do it sensitively, and think about your costume choices.

• Dress up as a character, not a condition –if all you’re doing is applying some scars with face paint, you’re mocking someone who looks different to you.
• Sense check: if your costume mimics a real-life condition, think twice: it could cause hurt and isolation or even bullying.
• If you have a visible difference and feel upset at Halloween, remember our Wellbeing team can help with emotional support

Calling #London residents: the Mayor's Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) is conducting a review of London Victim Services and they’re keen for us to feed into it. If you’ve been physically or verbally abused because of the way you look, can you spare ten minutes to fill in their survey? http://qoo.ly/sswxc - closing date is midnight 21 Oct. Thank you 😊
