Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
9.2 million people in the UK have a criminal record. Many of those entered the system as children, 24% came through the care system, 42% were expelled at school and 41% grew up in abusive households. Yet only 12% of employers will give an ex-offender a chance. This means that only a tiny percent of the 9.2 million will ever be able to get a job and support themselves or their families. We at Dog House Barber Academy believe in Second Chances which is why we created this amazing programme of barbering to train people who want a skill that will enable them to get work and change their lives.
Jay Byrne the founder of The Dog House Barber Academy has been through the system and thankfully someone gave him a second chance and he wants to do the same for other people.
You can sponsor as little or as much as you wish. It costs £1000 to put one person through our programme. They will be coached in all areas of barbering, business training, and job applications and introduced to a number of new opportunities to find steady work.
Apart from personal satisfaction from helping someone you will be featured on our website and all future publicity
