The Scar Free Foundation

Scar Free Foundation Large Print Logo RedThe Scar Free Foundation (formerly known as the Healing Foundation), was established in 1999 by the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons, with the aim of funding research into the improvement of treatments for the benefit of people who live with the physical and psychological challenges that result from a physical disfigurement or visible functional impairment.

From its inception, The Scar Free Foundation has placed the patient at the heart of its activity, both through regular input from people with first-hand experience of disfigurements and impairments (Scar Free Foundation Ambassadors), and by focusing on projects with clear potential for clinical impact and translation into routine care.
