Look Good Feel Better is a National Cancer Charity.
We know how challenging it can be to process a cancer diagnosis and manage the physical and emotional side-effects of cancer treatment. This is why we run free workshops both virtually and at Cancer Care Centres and Hospitals across the UK to support women, men and young adults through this time.
Our workshops are led by trained volunteers in the beauty industry and provide practical advice about changes to skin, eyebrows, eyelashes, hair, nails and body confidence. Volunteers in the health industry also lead our well-being focused workshops covering meditation, breathwork and gentle exercise to help reduce feelings of isolation and anxiety.
The best thing about them? Every single one offers an invaluable opportunity to meet others going through a similar situation.
Shopping for bras and swimwear after a mastectomy or breast surgery can seem like a daunting experience – but it doesn’t need to be.

We carry a comprehensive range of bras, swimwear and breast forms for women who have had a mastectomy, lumpectomy or reconstructive surgery. Using our expertise we are dedicated to creating and sourcing products and providing services that support women with specialist breast care needs.
HeadWrappers is a hair loss advisory service, focusing on alternatives to wigs and practical tips. Our aim is to help people look good and feel more confident about themselves as they undergo cancer treatments which may cause hair loss.
HeadWrappers offer face to face sessions on a quarterly basis here at The Nightingale Centre, but also offer regular online sessions and face to face sessions throughout the UK. Before the session, the client is asked to fill in a registration form, then the goodie bags are prepared, either to bring along to the venue, or to put in the post . The bag consists of a square cotton scarf and various items of headwear.
At a session, you can expect to learn various ways of tying the large scarf and about scalp care, before, during and after hair loss and receive advice about headwear and alternatives to wigs.
