The Katie Piper Foundation work to provide access to hair transplant surgery for people with permanent hair loss due to burn scarring. We support and give guidance to survivors, for NHS funding requests. Those who are refused that funding may be eligible for free, or partially funded, surgery made possible through the generosity of our partner The Farjo Hair Institute. We support patients throughout the whole process and step in to cover costs surrounding assessment and surgery. Treatments available include restoration of:
– facial hair
– eyebrows & eyelashes
– other hair bearing areas of the body.
Please contact us for further information. Johanne (Head of Charity Services) can talk to you about the options available and your likelihood of suitability. She can also arrange for you to speak to someone who has received hair restoration via the Foundation to give insight into the process.
Hair Replacement Systems
We continue to fund these for those individuals we are already supporting.
However, we are no longer taking on any new people for this. If you have permanent hair loss due to a burn injury and you would like some guidance on the options available, please contact us
Medical Tattooing and make-up support
Similarly to hair replacements, we continue to support those people who have already started on this journey with us. However, we are not taking on new beneficiaries for these services.
Impact of corona virus on hair and medical tattooing services
During the coronavirus period, if you are an existing client and have questions about when face-to-face appointments might be resumed, or how to best maintain your system or tattooing during this time, please contact your salon. If you are in discussion about a hair transplant, we are committed to continuing your journey with our partner Farjo Hair. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.
