Welcome
Our Mission
   
 

The Healing Foundation is a national fundraising charity championing the cause of people living with disfigurement and visible loss of function, by funding research into pioneering surgical and psychological healing techniques. Through research, we also raise awareness about the cause and provide information about the sources of support.

 
   
 
 
   
  The Need  
   
 

Hundreds of thousands of people are affected by disfigurement due to congenital abnormalities, disease or scarring from accidents or surgical procedures. It is not only the physical, but also the emotional scars that can cause severe psychological problems, which they and their families must overcome.

There is an immense need for more research, particularly in areas of tissue regeneration, burns, the psychological aspects of disfigurement, and conditions that affect children. At present no national strategy for research exists. There is enormous scope for improved collaboration, education and awareness.
