Changing Faces is a London-based organization that supports and represents children, young people and adults with facial disfigurements. It provides emotional support services, campaigns and advocates for a fairer society, and manages a volunteer-delivered skin camouflage service across the UK. Gen 2 funding will help launch a major advocacy effort in the UK to combat the rampant online bullying experienced by individuals with facial disfigurements.
“Changing Faces’ help has been invaluable. [Its] guides to boosting your confidence skills and dealing with others’ reactions were paramount to helping me accept myself for who I am. It also helped that there was someone on the other end of the phone to talk to and who could understand what living with my condition was like.”
