About our program

Look Good Feel Better is a national cancer-support program. We offer free in-person and online workshops and Confidence Kits to help people with any type of cancer manage the most common physical and psychological impacts of treatment. In providing practical tips and tools, we help connect a community of people living a shared experience; empowering them to regain control, confidence, and a sense of self.

Since 1990 we have supported over 190,000 Australian women, men, young adults, and teens through their cancer diagnosis and we’re very proud of the positive impact generated by our program, with over 98% of participants satisfied and willing to recommend Look Good Feel Better to others.

Run by volunteer experts, our Look Good Feel Better workshops are non-medical and brand-neutral, covering topics from skincare, cosmetics, and headwear options, through to grooming, fitness, mobility, and mental wellbeing. Our Confidence Kits contain a range of skincare and cosmetic products, in addition to practical written and video guides.

Look Good Feel Better is a global initiative. In Australia, the program is run by The Cancer Patients Foundation: a not-for-profit organisation unaffiliated with any other cancer charity. We receive no government funding and rely on the generosity of corporate and community sponsors.

More information about how you can support the Look Good Feel Better program is available on our Fundraise for us, Our events and Ways to give pages. The Cancer Patients Foundation Limited (ABN 80 051 758 368) is a charity endorsed as a deductible gift recipient and donations $2 and over are tax-deductible.

In-person Workshops

About Card Face To Face
We currently hold in-person workshops in over 100 venues across Australia.

In a comfortable and supportive group environment, our dedicated team of volunteers address common concerns and changes to the appearance that result from cancer treatment. We demonstrate a skincare routine to assist with side-effects like dryness and sun sensitivity; provide make-up tips to help correct and conceal redness, sallowness, pigmentation and dark circles, as well as demonstrating techniques for drawing on eyebrows and eyelashes; and offer advice on headwear options, including scarf styling and wig selection.

Each of our workshop participants receives a Confidence Kit full of skincare and make-up products donated by the cosmetic industry. The products in the Kit are used as tools to practice the techniques being demonstrated throughout the workshop and can then be taken home for continued use.

Our participants also benefit from the opportunity to meet others in a similar situation. Friendships and support networks are formed during our workshops that can provide comfort while navigating the diagnosis and treatment experience.

Virtual Workshops

About Card Virtual 3
Our Virtual Workshops are live and interactive and offer cancer patients the opportunity to engage with those in a similar situation without leaving the comfort of home.

A range of Virtual Workshop options are available, offering cancer patients of all ages, genders, and cancer types the opportunity to learn practical strategies to manage the appearance-related side effects of treatment, and improve energy, mobility, nutritional health, and mental wellbeing.

Standard weekly topics include Skincare and Make-up, and Wigs and Headwear, while our Feel Better Fridays Virtual Workshops focus on wellness and cover Chair Yoga, Emotional Freedom Technique (Tapping), Exercise, Meditation, Qigong, Healthy Cooking and Nutrition.

During the interactive workshops our facilitator provides practical information and demonstrates a range of techniques, while participants follow along and ask questions as we go.

Patients can choose to register for as many workshops as they would like to attend.

Home-Delivered Confidence Kits

About Card Confidence Kit Edit
Our Home-Delivered Confidence Kit service is available for those cancer patients who are unable to attend a Look Good Feel Better workshop for health, travel or personal reasons.

Our Home-Delivered Confidence Kits contain a range of skincare and cosmetic products, an instructional booklet and links to our practical video guides.

The Kit provides everything needed to guide patients through the skincare, make-up and headwear techniques normally covered in a workshop, at their own pace, from the comfort of their own home, and pairs perfectly with our Skincare and Make-Up Virtual Workshops.
