Changing Faces is the leading UK charity that supports and represents people who have disfigurements to the face, hand or body from any cause. We were founded in 1992 by James Partridge OBE, Chief Executive, who was injured in a car fire when he was 18 years old. Today we have a team of 25 professionals with expertise in counselling and psychological support, education, employment, health and social care, media and campaigning.

Many facial disfigurements are acquired during a violent crime. Are you worried about other people's reactions to your changed appearance? Do you think you're never going to find a partner or get that dream job? Are you struggling to accept the change to your appearance after the crime? Our specialist team of counsellers and psychologists can offer you a safe space to talk through your concerns and find a way to regain your self confidence and self esteem.

Over one million people in the UK have a disfigurement to the face or body. Over 500,000 people have disfigurements to the face – 1 in every 111. Disfigurement can affect anyone, at any time or at any age. A disfigurement may be present at birth as a result of a birthmark or a craniofacial condition. Scarring, paralysis and other disfigurements can also be acquired following an accident, an eye or skin condition, a surgical mistake, or cancer surgery.
