Berkhamsted, Herts

This group has been running since 2014.  The following are welcome to attend the meeting:
  • Those with all types of alopecia age 14 and over (male and female)
  • Friends/Partners of those with all types of alopecia (accompanying someone with alopecia)
  • Parents of children with all types of alopecia

Please note that those age 14-17 must be accompanied by someone age 18 or over.  Those under age 14 can go along to the meeting with a parent/guardian if they wish but please note that some children may not be comfortable at a meeting that is primarily made up of adult attendees.  We recommend you contact Sue before attending to ask if any other children or young people are going.  Alternatively Sue may be able to put you in touch with other children/young people and their parents in the area.

This Berkhamsted Support Group Spotlight article tells you what you can expect from the group.

A bit about Sue and her link with alopecia:
Sue is an Author and has had alopecia universalis for many years.  She is also an Ambassador for Alopecia UK.  You can read more about Sue and her experience with alopecia here.  Sue is also able to deliver workshops or talks in schools where there is a child with alopecia.  You can read more about that here or go to her website for full details www.suehamptonauthor.co.uk.

From Sue:
"Whether youíve just started to lose your hair or been living without it for decades, whether itís alopecia areata or the full monty, and whether you keep it secret or go bareheaded, come along and feel free to be yourself."

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 Sue below:

  • Sue has her telephone number advertised and is happy to receive a telephone call and provide a listening ear
  • Sue is happy to receive support questions from those in her local area and will answer to the best of her ability based on her own knowledge and experiences.  Please be aware that any questions Sue is unable to answer will be sent on to staff at Alopecia UK.

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 and wanting to reach out and help others.

You can always contact Alopecia UK head office direct during office hours should you have any queries that need a more urgent response.

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.  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.
