Since 2019 the Charity has seen a huge increase in applications from our industry. A significant rise in domestic violence and the cost of living crisis means that more people need the help of the charity than ever before.
There is also growth in the number of requests coming from men – one of whom is a single parent and said that the Charity help had meant he was able to take his son to McDonald’s as a treat for the first time in three years, this being the only treat they had been able to afford in that time.
As well as asking salons and industry professionals to sign up to our monthly Supporter Campaign, we are also asking the larger companies who operate in the hair & beauty industry, to give back by providing a regular donation.”
The monthly amount raised will go towards providing school uniforms for children in financially struggling families; cots, beds & bedding, carpets, fridges, freezers and washing machines for many more families – everyday basics that change lives.
Pledging has never been easier, simply visit hairandbeautycharity.org/support to sign up in three easy clicks. Mobile users can now use Apple Pay or Google Pay. There’s an also an option to pledge more if you wish and Supporters will each receive a Welcome Pack.
