Background Information"Changing Faces is a national charity based in the UK that supports and represents people who have disfigurements of the face or body from any cause. Changing Faces is determined to enable people who have disfigurements to develop high self-esteem and self-confidence, have access to the very best health and social services and enjoy equal rights and opportunities throughout their lives." Changing Faces provides advice and counselling for the 400,000 people in the United Kingdom with some form of disfigurement. In 1998 Changing Faces, along with the University of the West of England, established the Centre for Appearance Research (CAR).
