The aim of Changing Faces is to enable people to tackle disfigurement with confidence.  It does this by providing information, support, counselling, workshops, family days and other activities. The organisation has researched practical ways to help deal with difficulties that may be experienced at school or elsewhere.

The cheque will be presented to the Dublin Cleft Team at our Information Evening on 26th February.
