Our People

Face Equality International aims to attract Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), charities and support groups which seek to improve the lives of people with facial differences and their families by providing direct support to and/or directly advocating for them and which are interested to promote the campaign for ‘face equality’.

James Partridge – Founder

James was a social entrepreneur, author, loving husband, father, grandfather, and the architect of the global face equality movement. After founding and leading Changing Faces, UK for 25 years, his understanding of the power of collective action led him in 2018 to launch Face Equality International,  an Alliance of 36 organisations around the world.
