Yorkshire Children's Group

The following are welcome to attend the Yorkshire Children Support meeting:
  • Children and young people with all types of alopecia up to the age of eighteen (male and female)
  • Parents of children with all types of alopecia
  • Siblings of those with all types of alopecia (accompanying someone with alopecia)
Please note that those age under 18 must be accompanied by someone age 18 or over.

This group will be lead by two of Alopecia UK's staff - Amy and Naomi.  

Amy has run the Birmingham Children's Support Group for the past three years and has recently passed the group over to new leaders, allowing a new group to be formed in her home county of Yorkshire. 

Naomi lives West Yorkshire and is Alopecia UK's newest staff member, taking on the role of charity administrator and is keen to support a children's group in the local area. 

Both Amy and Naomi have alopecia and hope to inspire and reassure those who come to the kids groups. 

Both will be on hand to offer advice to parents and children and hopefully facilitate lots of fun times!

Need Advice or Support Outside of the Group Meetings?
The main role of support group leads is to facilitate, and answer questions about, the group meetings.  Some may offer additional support and you can see what is on offer from both below:
  • Amy does have her telephone number advertised and is happy to provide a listening ear via telephone call at a time arranged via email.
  • Amy is happy to receive support questions via email from those in her local area and will answer to the best of her ability based on her own knowledge and experiences. 
Please note that all of our support group leads are volunteers and do this in their spare time.  As such please allow up to a week for replies to emails.  The majority of group leads are not trained health professionals and will be helping from the standpoint of being someone who is affected by alopecia themselves (or their child) and wanting to reach out and help others.

Suggestions, Comments, Compliments, Complaints?
If you have any 'Suggestions, Comments, Compliments or Complaints' about any of the Support Groups listed on the Alopecia UK website then you can let us know by clicking here.  Feedback is always appreciated.  The information will be used by Alopecia UK to help us understand what works and what doesn't in order that we can support and advise group leads more effectively and develop the Alopecia UK support group network.
