30 years ago, Look Good Feel Better embarked on its journey to improve the physical and emotional wellbeing of people living with cancer across the UK.
Our track record spans back 30 years, but our mission remains the same: we want everyone living with a cancer diagnosis to feel empowered, motivated, and less isolated – to look good, but most importantly feel even better.
The charity was established in 1994 with our first ever workshop taking place at the Royal Free Hospital in North London. Fast forward 30 years and our services have grown monumentally. Our workshops are now running in over 115 locations across the UK, and we now also offer a range of different online workshops, tailored to address the common physical side effects of cancer treatment, and available for people to access anywhere.
Over the last three decades, we have helped over 200,000 people living with cancer to regain their confidence and self-esteem.
None of this would be possible without the generosity of our supporters. It’s your belief in our work that enables us to keep going and growing. Thanks to your continued and unwavering support, we start our 30th anniversary year with big plans and ambitions for the future, and we are incredibly grateful for that.
Our services are needed today more than ever, but we face the future knowing that our workshops will continue to help thousands of people face cancer with confidence.

Volunteer With Us
Volunteers have been at the heart of Look Good Feel Better for the last 30 years and make up the vast majority of our people. They are ordinary people who do extraordinary things sharing their skills and talent and without them we couldn’t deliver our incredible workshops.
And it’s not all about volunteering at the workshops though; there are so many other ways you can give a little (or a lot) of your time to support Look Good Feel Better and make a difference.
