Our Mission

The mission of Alopecia Support Ireland is to provide support, raise awareness and educate people with all types of Alopecia and their families.

  • Informing the public about alopecia
  • Advocating the concerns of people affected alopecia areata
  • Creating and distributing educational materials to health professionals as well as those affected, so that all may better understand Alopecia.
