Look Good Feel Better

Facing cancer with confidence

We know how challenging it can be to process a cancer diagnosis and manage the physical and emotional side-effects of cancer treatment. This is why we run free workshops both virtually and at Cancer Care Centres and Hospitals across the UK to support women, men and young adults through this time.

Our workshops are led by trained volunteers in the beauty industry and provide practical advice about changes to skin, eyebrows, eyelashes, hair, nails and body confidence. Volunteers in the health industry also lead our well-being focused workshops covering meditation, breathwork and gentle exercise to help reduce feelings of isolation and anxiety.

The best thing about them? Every single one offers an invaluable opportunity to meet others going through a similar situation
