Look Good Feel Better

Wellbeing workshops and classes for people living with cancer 

We understand how emotionally challenging living with cancer can be. That’s why Look Good Feel Better run free workshops, virtually and in local communities across the UK, which give practical advice and support to people living with cancer.


Every workshop offers an invaluable opportunity to talk to others in a similar situation, whilst helping support people with their changing appearance. People leave our workshops feeling empowered, motivated and less isolated – allowing them to look good, but feel even better.

Support for Women
