Who we are

Microtia UK was established as a charity in 2013 and evolved from the Microtia Mingle facebook group (Microtia Mingle UK – Microtia UK support group) by three Mums to children affected by Microtia. Liz Jones the founder member of the Facebook group joined forces with Hana Thalova and Ali Daniels to create the first ever UK charity offering support to those affected by Microtia. The charity became registered in 2014 and has gone on to produce a nationally recognised New Parents Guide, offered annual family information events in London, Scotland and Ireland and recently been able to support medical and psychological research through the provision of grants.
