Peninsula Community Wig Centre

Established in 2008 by Peninsula Private Hospital and Beleura Private Hospital, the Peninsula Community Wig Centre is a free community service available to anyone living on the Mornington Peninsula experiencing hair loss due to treatment for cancer.

The service is run by dedicated volunteers many of whom are trained hairdressers. There are a variety of wigs and scarves available on loan to clients and over 1000 wigs have been loaned since opening.

In addition to funding provided by Peninsula Private Hospital, Beleura Private Hospital and Peninsula Health, there are many other generous local community groups supporting the Peninsula Community Wig Centres through fundraising and with practical help such as sewing head wear or knitting caps in winter, including:

  • Dame Elisabeth Murdochs Cruden Farm
  • Knit One Give One (Kogo)
  • The Bag Ladies of Frankston
  • Sorrento Community Centre
  • Frankston City Council
  • Ebdale Community Hub
  • Inner Wheel MorningtoN
  • Sorrento Portsea RSL
  • Breast Cancer Network Australia
  • The Bee Hive Mornington
  • Breast Intentions Mornington
  • Hollywood Wigs Southport QLD
  • Celebrity Wigs Melbourne
  • Budget Beauty Frankston
  • Blaigowrie Yacht Squadron
  • The Craft Ladies Group of Frankston Uniting Church

Through community development, the Peninsula Wig Centre has also assisted in establishing the Wig Centres at Cabrini Private, The Cancer Council of Victoria and Warringal Private Hospital Heidelberg. The Peninsula Wig Centre can also provide speakers to local community groups to raise awareness of the wig services.
