COVID19 Support

The last few months have been incredibly difficult for our members and the industry at large. Finally there is light at the end of the tunnel with most businesses either back already (in some capacity) or gearing up to go back now that the government(s) have mostly lifted restritions and finalised return dates. This has been and remains an extraordinary time with unprecedented  & complicated problems and absolutely no perfect solutions - so we are aware that there is still much confusion and concern around what is and isn't allowed to be done. We will continue, along with other invloved industry bodies, to highlight these queries and concerns to government.

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. We continue to update both this hub and our News weekly so please remember to continue to check in here regularly as we will be adding to this on an ongoing basis.

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.
