Looking for support?

Join our closed Facebook group

We have a closed Facebook group which provides a safe, private, respectful and mutually supportive place for women to come together and talk about practical and emotional matters related to living flat, including clothing, cancer treatment and relationships in everyday life.

Join us via our public page on Facebook, from which you can reach the closed group. We know you will find a warm welcome and plenty of advice from hundreds of supportive women. We also have a public forum on this website and hold regular face to face meet up across the UK. For more information and to find out where the nearest one is, you can email us via support@flatfriends.org.uk.

Information on Living Flat
Whether you are facing a mastectomy to treat breast cancer, or you are considering a risk-reducing mastectomy due to a strong family history or known inherited altered gene, the decision to have reconstruction or not after mastectomy is an extremely personal one.
Post Mastectomy Fashion

Flat Friends UK has teamed up with Flat Friends trustee and fashionista Sarah Coombes of Flatter Fashion to offer advice, tips, photos and secrets to looking fabulous to those living flat and those using prostheses.
