It’s Face Equality Week, a time to celebrate visible differences. This week we’re raising awareness of what needs to change so everyone with a visible difference or disfigurement can live the life they want to lead. It’s simply not right that:
- One in three people in the UK, say that they feel depressed, sad or anxious as a result of having a visible difference.
- Almost a quarter say they feel self-conscious or embarrassed going out in public as a result of their visible difference.
Changing faces is an organisation which support people who have a visible difference to lead the lives they want. Find out more here
Changing Faces campaigners want to get people talking about their experiences of living life with a scar, mark or condition that makes them look different. Watch their latest video below.
These conversation starters may help you encourage a discussion about visible difference.
This week we will be raising awareness of Face Equality Week on our social medias, make sure you follow us to see our posts!
