Cardiff (Wales)

The Cardiff group has been running for a while and for 2017 has new group lead, Louise, stepping in to take over from Gwennan.  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.  This group is not suitable for those under 14.  If you are under 14, or you have a child under 14, and are looking for support please do still contact the group lead so that they can keep your details for any future developments of the group or try and put you in touch with others in the area.


Light refreshments will be served in a private church hall.

Please get in touch with Louise ahead of a meeting and let her know if you intend to go along.

Louise's link with alopecia:

Louise has had alopecia for over three years and currently has alopecia areata.

From Louise:
"I'm a busy working mum who is married with 3 beautiful children. I love being outdoors and taking my Labrador for long country walks to unwind. I was diagnosed with Alopecia back in 2013 and after a bumpy start am embracing the challenges it brings. I'm hoping our group will offer those in need a much needed supportive ear and for those more comfortable with their Alopecia a chance to meet up with people for a good chat over a decent brew."

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 Louise below:
  • Louise has her telephone number advertised and is happy to provide a listening ear via telephone call if someone phones (evenings between 6pm and 9pm). 
  • Louise 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 Louise 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.
