Aspiring model Katie Piper suffered third degree burns after her former boyfriend arranged for someone to throw acid in her face in 2008.
On Tuesday she launched the Katie Piper Foundation, which has Simon Cowell as its patron.
She told BBC Breakfast about her plan to help others with similar injuries by setting up a special therapy centre.
