This year marks 25 years since James Partridge started Changing Faces.
For a charity that began on the kitchen table of his farmhouse in the Channel Islands, we have come a long way. With more than thirty staff in three centres across the UK, and having helped tens of thousands of people find a way to live the life they want, we have a great deal to celebrate in 2017.
The main focus on our activity this year will be the first Face Equality Day which takes place on Friday 26 May 2017, our actual birthday. We’ll have activities taking place around the UK to raise awareness of our work and of the Face Equality campaign, and we’ll be asking our supporters to get involved. Follow the event on Facebook for updates.
We’ll also be publishing groundbreaking new research that day. Based on our current survey, it will provide a snapshot of life in the UK for people who live with a disfigurement. You can help us by taking the survey before the end of February.
