Announcing our alliance with Face Equality International

We are proud to announce that Caring Matters Now have become part of the alliance with Face Equality International (FEI) just in time for Face Equality Week 2024.

FEI is an alliance of Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), charities and support groups which are working at national, regional, or international levels to promote the campaign for ‘face equality’. FEI seeks NGOs, charities and support groups as members which are working to improve the lives of people with disfigurements by providing direct support to and/or directly advocating for them. These could be people with a facial birth condition or birthmark, with scarring from accidents, violence, or warfare, or from cancer and its treatments, or with skin conditions like psoriasis, vitiligo and acne, or a facial paralysis like Bell’s palsy and stroke, or eye/sight problems.

“We are delighted to partner with Face Equality International and to work alongside those within the FEI alliance to address the issue of inequality for people living with a visibility difference, such as Congenital Melanocytic Naevus. Through the FEI network, we want to work towards a society which celebrates facial diversity and in return creating a lasting positive impact on the lives of those in our communities of support networks.”

Jodi Whitehouse, Caring Matters Now Chief Executive Officer

“What an exciting time for Caring Matters Now to join the Alliance as we gear up for our sixth International Face Equality Week. Having been a fan of Caring Matters Now for a while and the wonderful ways in which the charity creates awareness through stunning imagery and exhibitions, I’m honoured that you’re joining us on this journey to making face equality a reality.”

Phyllida Swift, Face Equality International Chief Executive Officer
