Service description:
We provide real hair wigs, free of charge, to boys and girls across the UK and Ireland that have lost their own hair through cancer treatment.

As a result of treatment for cancer, most children will suffer hair loss as a side effect. Some boys and girls cope remarkably well but for others this can be very upsetting.

We work with specialist suppliers and experienced hairdressers who offer wigs tailored to the individual child’s needs to give the most realistic look and feel, as close as possible to their original hair. We strive to put parents/guardians in contact with suppliers as local as possible.

The Little Princess Trust is a children’s cancer charity with a mission is to supply real hair wigs to children suffering with cancer, for the duration of their treatment.

The charity uses a team of over 100 trusted independent wig suppliers which cover the whole of the UK and Ireland.

However, in addition they assist children with other conditions which also result in hair loss, the most common being alopecia. The Trust is able to supply children that do not have a cancer diagnosis with a single wig. and hope that this gesture will help the child and family whilst they decide on their long-term plans for dealing with this condition.

For boys and young men, go to About Hero for information.
