Wig service

Information about the Cancer Council Wig Service

The Cancer Council Wig Service has an extensive range of new wigs, turbans and scarves in the latest styles and colours.

These may be borrowed, at no cost, for as long as required while going through cancer treatment.

Fully trained volunteers are available to assist you with the selection, fitting and management of your wig.

If you have already lost your hair, please bring a photograph of yourself before your hair loss to assist with the selection. It also helps if you can wear your normal make-up, including eyebrow definition.
