  • To provide information and support for people living with facial palsy, their relatives, carers and medical professionals.
  • To establish local support groups throughout the UK.
  • To organise family days for children affected by the condition and their families

Facial Palsy UK is still a young charity, founded in 2012, but we have already made a significant impact on the lives of many people affected by facial paralysis. The work that we do includes:

  • Local support groups for adults with facial palsy
  • Family days for children with facial palsy and their families
  • Providing information and support via our website, telephone and email.
  • Raising awareness of facial palsy and how it impacts on the lives of those affected.
  • Increasing awareness of the needs of facial palsy patients.
  • Instigating research projects for the long-term benefit of people affected by facial palsy. Very few research projects investigating the causes and treatments of facial palsy are currently being undertaken.
