Portsmouth Children Support

This group was previously run as part of the Hampshire Support Group.  It is now running separately solely for Children and Young People.

The following are welcome to attend the Portsmouth 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)
The Portsmouth meeting usually has Ben (age 13) and Megan (age 12) in attendance to help out (please do check with Stewart).

Please note that those age under 18 must be accompanied by someone age 18 or over.


The last meeting took place on Saturday 9th December 2017.  Please check back again soon for 2018 meeting dates.

The group meeting is held in a private room used exclusively by group attendees.  Tea, coffee and soft drinks are available free of charge.

Support group contacts

Stewart & Ben

Phone: 07932645739


Please get in touch with Stewart ahead of a meeting and let him know if you intend to go along so that he can keep track of numbers.

Stewart's link with alopecia:

Stewart's son Ben (age 13) has alopecia.  Stewart recognises the benefits of Ben being able to speak to and listen to other people with alopecia; people who understand how he feels. Ben's feedback to his Dad was "It's good to know you are not alone".

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:
  • Stewart has his telephone number advertised and is happy to provide a listening ear via telephone call if someone phones (Stewart will answer whenever he is able to).
  • Stewart is happy to receive support questions from those in his local area and will answer to the best of his ability based on his own knowledge and experiences.  Please be aware that any questions Stewart 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.  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.
