At Look Good Feel Better our confidence-boosting workshops are part of our DNA – that’s what we do. Now, because of the current worldwide crisis, we know that our support is even more vital so we’ve trialled and launched virtual workshops to enable us to reach out to people living with cancer in their own homes.
Wellbeing workshops and classes for people living with cancer
We understand how emotionally challenging living with cancer can be. This is why we run wellbeing workshops and classes virtually and at hospitals and cancer care centres across the UK; led by beauty and health expert volunteers to help people feel good, look better and more like themselves again.
Support for Women
Book onto an enjoyable and informative two hour online workshop. As part of a small group you’ll have a chance to learn new skills and techniques and have the opportunity to chat to our expert as well as others in a similar situation to yourself.
Support for Men
Our men’s sessions are hosted by barbering experts and cover issues over shaving, uncomfortable skin, scarring and other challenges. It’s a chance to ask questions and learn something new.
