Arranging Your Wig

We aim to make the process of obtaining a wig as straight forward as possible. A wig can be requested either by yourself, by your parents or by the hospital.

Who do we provide wigs for?

We provide real hair wigs to children and young people, up to 24 years, who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment or other conditions.

As a children’s cancer charity, our mission is to supply real hair wigs, free of charge, to children and young people with cancer, for the duration of their treatment.

We can also provide a single wig to children and young people throughout the UK and Ireland who have other conditions that result in hair loss, such as alopecia. Although this is different to our support for children with cancer, we hope this one-off gesture will help families decide on their long-term plans for dealing with the condition.

What will happen?

We know you are juggling a lot at the moment, so we have made it as easy as possible for you to request and receive your wig.

Step 1

Step 1

When you contact us we will ask for basic information, such as: your name and name of child; child’s age; contact details; and a brief background of their treatment schedule, etc.

Step 2

Step 2

Once we’ve taken your details, we will identify an LPT-approved salon in the area closest to you, and will pass on your contact details. They will keep this information confidential and wait for you to contact them to make an appointment.

Step 3

Step 3

We will provide you with details of the salon, so that you can contact them directly to arrange an appointment. If it is not possible for your child to visit the salon, sometimes a ward or home visit can be arranged.

Step 4

Step 4

Visiting the salon. Together with the stylist, you will choose the most suitable wig in terms of size, colour and feel. Your wig will be fitted and styled.  You may have to attend a second appointment for the final fitting.  You will not be charged for the appointments, or for the wig.

How long will it take?

Although timescales may vary, typically hair loss can begin within 2-3 weeks of the first chemotherapy session. Hair loss can also be gradual. We are aware of these timescales and strive to have your wig available before the original hair is lost, although this is dependent on the point at which you contact us, and cannot always be guaranteed.

Hero by LPT

We recognise that some children and young people may prefer our alternative branding, Hero by LPT.  Hero is run by us in just the same way and has the same values — just a different name and logo.
