We research facial injury and disease to improve treatment for patients worldwide


Saving Faces is a small charity that works to improve treatment for people who suffer with facial disfigurement, injury and disease.

We research better treatment for and prevention of mouth cancer:

In the UK 5000 people get mouth cancer every year

It’s twice as common as cervical cancer

It’s the most disfiguring cancer and affects patients’ ability to speak and eat

We research better treatment for facial injury:

125,000 young people sustain serious facial injuries every year in the UK

We research better psychological support for patients with facial disfigurement:

15,000 people in the UK seek treatment for facial disfigurement every year. 

The surgeons who are taking part in our research are working hard to improve the treatment of all patients with mouth cancer and other disfiguring facial injuries and diseases. They give their time pro bono but Saving Faces makes this research possible by providing researchers to collect outcome data about differing treatment protocols and research. Saving Faces also funds psychology researchers and trains surgeons in research. It provides patient-to-patient support through its expert patient ‘phone line.
