Can I donate my wig to Look Good Feel Better?

Unfortunately we cannot accept wigs for hygiene reasons. Some local charities and hospices may be able to take them.

What help can I get to cover the cost of wigs or headwear?

The Ministry of Health provides a subsidy for adults with temporary hair loss. This could cover the cost of scarves, hats, turbans or a wig. The subsidy (in 2021) is $408.88 (GST incl) over a one-year period. If your wig or headwear costs more than this, you will need to pay the remainder.
