Friday 26th May is the very first Face Equality day!
Changing Faces want to increase awareness ensuring everyone is treated fairly and equal whatever the appearance of their face or body. It will include news reports, activities and ways for everyone to get involved to show their support!
About Changing Faces:
Beginning their work in 1992 changing faces set out to help people who have a disfigurement find a way to live the life they want.
They are here to help people conquer fears, take the first steps and ultimately take control, by being on a client’s side and by their side as they define their own sense of identity, their purpose and realise their dreams.
Changing Faces would like each person who has an unusual appearance to be living their life without the anxiety or fear of being ignored, physically or verbally abused or harassed.
The charity will soon be publishing Disfigurement in the UK, with a ground-breaking new report on the experiences of people who have a disfigurement.
