Our Impact


The Scar Free Foundation, formerly The Healing Foundation, was first established in 1999 by BAPRAS. The Foundation was founded by plastic surgeon Michael Brough, who had treated survivors of the 1989 Kings Cross Fire and recognised the need for a research organisation dedicated to improving the outlook for survivors of conditions or accidents that cause scarring.

Over the last 20 years, the Foundation has overseen a £50 million programme of life changing medical research.
