About us

Katie Piper is a best-selling international author, inspirational speaker, TV presenter and charity campaigner. She is also a young woman who has rebuilt her life after surviving a brutal attack in March 2008 at the age of 24, during which she had sulphuric acid thrown in her face. She spent two months in the Burns Unit at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital where she was placed in an induced coma in intensive care.

Just over a year after the attack, Katie made the decision to give up her anonymity.  Katie shared her story in a remarkable film for the Cutting Edge strand on Channel 4 called ‘Katie: My Beautiful Face’, which was watched by over 3.5million viewers. 

In 2009 Katie went on to set up her own charity, The Katie Piper Foundation. Simon Cowell supported Katie in her mission by becoming the patron and remains actively involved to date.
