Our Campaigners Programme will give people with a visible difference a platform to use their voices and seek change at the highest levels.
Our Campaigners will be a group of 15 people of all ages, with a visible difference from across England and Wales. They will help to lead the direction of our national campaigns, research and other activities, giving a crucial perspective on what it’s really like to live with a visible difference.
They will also act as public-facing ambassadors for our charity in the media and at events.
‘Through Changing Faces I was given the opportunity to celebrate my differences by appearing in a fashion show. I was extremely nervous about it at first, but having met other people with facial and bodily differences, my confidence had a tremendous boost. It increased my self esteem because I felt a strong connection with them and made me understand that I wasn’t alone.’ – Katy
