Leading British hair loss charity – Alopecia UK – has announced the relaunch of its website.
New online donation facility
Thanks to new funding from the Transform Foundation, Alopecia UK has revamped its website, which now offers a range of new functions. These include an online shop, the ability for supporters of the charity to set up their own fundraising page, and – critically – the ability to take online donations.
Promising ‘blogs, stories and much more’ there is already a lot to explore, including a Guide to Wigs, and advice for children and young people with alopecia.
The website hasn’t just added new resources, however, it has also had a makeover to better reflect its updated branding. This includes the new Alopecia UK logo, which took elements from each of the two pre-merger charities’ emblems.
Improved service directory
For those with hair loss, it can be hard to know where to turn – especially when the condition cannot be treated. This is the case for all forms of autoimmune alopecia in children and Alopecia Totalis and Alopecia Universalis in adults. For medically-suitable over 16s there are Alopecia Areata treatment options to address the scalp-only form of the autoimmune disorder.
In these instances where treatment is not possible, finding information on peer support groups, wig or hair system suppliers, as well as cosmetic procedures such as eyebrow tattooing (microblading) or micropigmentation of the scalp, can be invaluable.
Alopecia UK now has an easy-to-use service directory of business listings on its website, which any relevant companies wishing to be featured can apply to join.
You can visit the new website and explore all its updated and added features at www.alopecia.org.uk and for further news on the latest research, clinical trials and stories relating to Alopecia Areata you can browse the Alopecia section of Belgravia’s hairloss blog.
