The Katie Piper Foundation exists to make it easier to live with burns and scars. We provide services to adult survivors of burns that improve their mental and physical wellbeing, enabling them to reach their own goals in order to live a fulfilling life.
We were established 10 years ago after our Founder, Katie Piper, suffered significant burns as the result of an acid attack. After Katie's acute care, she travelled to France to receive rehabilitation from a specialist French government funded service there. Katie was determined to ensure that other survivors of burns were able to receive equivalent transformational care in the UK, without needing to go abroad.
We don’t receive any funding from the Government or NHS to deliver our services. We need to raise £8,232 for each person’s life we transform in order to deliver this outstanding and unique service. You are the key to us achieving this; you can make it easier to live with burns and scars.
