Abstract and Keywords

This article presents the story of James Partridge who survived extensive, disfiguring burns sustained in a car accident at the age of 18. James's case highlights the immense challenges inherent in changing social and societal attitudes, but he feels optimistic that this change can be achieved. He highlights the role lay-led organizations can play in this process by outlining his charity's recent campaign to promote ‘Face Equality’, and describing a series of posters of people with visible differences which have been displayed in many cities in England and which were designed to raise awareness, educate, and challenge viewers.

Keywords: James Partridge, burn injury, appearance, visible difference
