The Healing Foundation is now the Scar Free Foundation

1st August 2016


The Healing Foundation has changed to The Scar Free Foundation.  On 19 July 2016, at an event at The Royal College of Surgeons of England, the charity published its Scar Free Strategy and formally changed its name.

The Foundation is setting the bold ambition to achieve scar free healing within a generation, building on over 15 years of pioneering research in disfigurement, wound healing and aesthetics research.

The research strategy, available from the charity’s new website – - envisages a multi-disciplinary, scientific but clinically driven focus of work over the next 10 years to kick start a global research movement set to deliver new treatments for patient in both the medium and long term.

Unveiling the change, Scar Free Foundation Chief Executive Brendan Eley commented, “We have an excellent track record of research in this area which is an excellent foundation on which to build our scar free strategy.  We have a challenging fundraising task ahead but with the single, focused goal of the new charity and the incredible support we receive from organisations like BAAPS and their members, we know that scar free healing within a generation can happen”.  For more information, visit or @scarfreeworld
