COVID19 Support

The last few months have been incredibly difficult for our members and the industry at large. This has been and remains an extraordinary time with unprecedented  & complicated problems and ever changing rules and restrictions accross all the nations of the UK.  We will continue, along with other invloved industry bodies, to highlight industry queries and concerns to government and update our members on an ongoing basis.

Sadly there are also still those who for whatever reason still cannot return to work and in desperate need of financial support.  If you are able to please support our Beauty Backed Campaign here. Every little bit helps! 

Over the past few months we have also collated and provided ongoing business recovery support, resources, tips and updates, together with our experts and partners, to help you to navigate the past few months so that when this tough time passes you will be fully prepared and equipped to make full use of all the opportunities that will arise. Some of these are available here and further Back to work Toolkits have been available to Members on the Members Lounge.  

Latest Resources & Announcements

We continue to update our News section weekly so please remember to continue to check regularly as we will be adding to this on an ongoing basis.For the most up to date announcements and guidance from all the devolved nations please click here

Important Notice Regarding Government Guidelines - as all the government bodies continue to add updates and amendments frequently to their guidance at the moment, we advise members to keep checking for updates as they do not always confirm when they have. Any government guidelines do have to provide a date for their last update and a summary of what has changed, so keep a check that the copy you have is the most recent version.

How can we all help? 

While this crisis affects all of us, this is the time more than ever to help those even more affected than we are. Whether this is a simple phone call to an elderly relative or friend or a client you know is all alone or vulnerable due to health conditions, these small acts of kindness may be a far greater gift to those receiving them. 

If you are able to provide more help either financially or by assisting perhaps with small donations of supplies (e.g. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) you may have in your salons e.g. gloves, sanitiser, masks) below are some charitible options for you to consider supporting.
