We support children, young people, adults and families throughout Scotland to build their self-confidence and achieve their life goals. We promote a culture of confidence, positivity and acceptance around disfigurement. We campaign for face equality in schools and at work while challenging misrepresentation and discrimination.
Our Youth Engagement Officer works with schools and youth groups to support them become confident to welcome and include pupils who have a condition, injury or illness which affects their appearance. They offer advice on how to talk to all children about disfigurement, and how to incorporate face equality into lessons. Our young people workshops cover appearance related bullying and challenging discrimination towards those with a disfigurement.
If you would like us to work with your school, please email email@example.com or call us on 0131 516 5481.
People with disfigurements should be judged fairly without prejudice or bias, and treated fairly and equally at work, in shops, in restaurants – everywhere. That is why we have created the Face Equality at Work campaign. We work with both employers and people with disfigurements, and the rest of society to enable everyone to face disfigurement with confidence.
Across Scotland we provide advice and consultation services to employers and their employees, including those affected directly or indirectly by a disfigurement. We also offer advice to jobseekers towards creating the right work atmosphere and customer service experience.
