The Scar Free Foundation
In 2005 The Scar Free Foundation funded a three year project ‘Identifying factors and processes contributing to successful adjustment to disfiguring conditions’. The support from The Scar Free Foundation enabled us to develop a unique collaboration of researchers and clinicians (clinical and health psychologists, nurses) from across the UK.
Vocational Training Charitable Trust (VTCT)
In 2009 VTCT awarded CAR the funds necessary to appoint two senior researchers for five years, to lead two streams of research:
- Interventions to meet the psychosocial needs of those adversely affected by appearance concerns.
- Promoting a positive attitudinal climate in which diversity in appearance is valued.
