Important update to Wig Service due to COVID-19
In-person visits to our Wig Service have been suspended until further notice due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is to ensure the health and safety of all of our staff, volunteers, colleagues, and the patients and families that we support.
In the mean time, our Wig Service is still available across the state via postal orders.
To access our postal Wig Service, please complete our Product Request Form and return it to us via post, by email or by calling our Cancer Nurses on 13 11 20. It would also be helpful to send a photo of what you might be looking for.
There are also various videos below on styling headwear with confidence.
Please note: Every item loaned by the Wig Service is laundered to ensure sanitised products are available for our clients.

Our Wig Service has an extensive range of wigs, turbans, beanies and scarves in a range of styles and colours. You may borrow a wig or product for as long as you like, and exchange it as many times as you need. A range of turbans and scarves are also available for loan.
Fully-trained volunteers are available to assist you with the selection, fitting and management of your products.
If you have already lost your hair, please bring a photograph taken prior to your hair loss to assist with the selection. It also helps if you can wear your normal make-up, including eyebrow definition.
In order for us to continually provide a free ongoing Wig Service we do request wigs and products borrowed are returned to the service when they are no longer required.
