Changing Faces provides expert counselling, advice, and resources to people affected by disfigurement helping them feel good about themselves in a world where looks seem to count for so much. Changing Faces has empowered me and I’m now a strong advocate of their Face Equality campaign which fights to change public attitude towards those affected by a disfigurement.


Which are you?

Child or young person

I would like to say that I may look different but that doesn’t mean I can’t live a full and happy life. Whitney Houston once sang: “Learning to love yourself is the greatest love of all”. In my case, this has been difficult but at this stage in my life, I feel that I am almost there.
