CHARITY AFFILIATESThe British Beauty Council would like to thank our charity affiliates for their support
Beauty Banks are a people-powered, grassroots movement. They believe that being clean is a basic human right, not a luxury and not a privilege. They exist to make ‘hygiene poverty’ history while supporting those living in poverty in the UK – those who can’t afford to be clean – with personal care and hygiene essentials. This is about dignity, self-confidence and mental wellbeing. This is also about change. They support those in need while lobbying the UK government, as part of a Beauty APPG, to make change happen. Ours is beauty with purpose.
HAIR AND BEAUTY CHARITY
Hair and Beauty Charity is dedicated to helping hair and beauty professionals in need. With roots going back to 1853, the official industry charity offers financial support to individuals and their families facing difficult times due to unforeseen circumstances such as illness, bereavement and financial hardship. The charity’s beneficiaries are supported with regular payments or one-off grants to make their lives a little easier. Hair and Beauty Charity relies on support from corporate sponsors and hair and beauty professionals to continue their vital work. Please visit their website should you require support or for information on how to donate, fundraise or support us. Together we can make difference.
Haircuts4Homeless is a community group set up by veteran hairdresser Stewart Roberts. Inspired by the actions of hairdressers in various parts of the world cutting hair for the homeless, Stewart set out not only to do this his self but to build a whole community of skilled hairdresser volunteers who give their time free of charge to give haircuts for homeless people.
At Haircuts4Homeless it’s more than just a haircut, it’s kindness shown that makes a homeless person know that people really care.
THE HYGIENE BANK
The Hygiene Bank is a grassroots, people powered charity, grounded in community. Their network of banks exist to ensure those living in poverty and can’t afford to be clean, have access to the basics. This is about dignity, self-confidence and mental wellbeing. Feeling clean should not be a luxury or a privilege in the modern world and so they work to inspire social change.
LADY GARDEN FOUNDATION
The Lady Garden Foundation is on a mission to raise awareness and significant funds for gynaecological health, to help drastically reduce the diagnoses and devastating outcomes of the five cancers – ovarian, cervical, vaginal, vulval and womb. They are often referred to as silent killers, not only because of their complicated symptoms which can be missed by healthcare professionals, but also due to a lack of awareness surrounding these diseases.
We are Lady Garden.
We stand together as daughters, sisters and mothers.
We challenge taboos and do away with the ‘private’ in our ‘private parts’.
We are loud and we are bold.
We are restless and we are relentless.
We are Lady Garden.
We will be #SilentNoMore.
