- Funded on Wednesday, 28th December 2016
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.
The Lions Barber Collective is an international collection of top barbers which have come together to help raise awareness for the prevention of suicide.
We aim to create training that will enable barbers to Recognise, Talk, Listen and Advise their clients when they are sat in their chair. As Barbers we have a unique relationship of trust and friendship crossing personal space which often creates a strong bond between barber and client allowing many people to open up and discuss subjects they wouldn't usually talk to friends or family about.
We don't want barbers to become councillors, however we would love our industry to embrace the trust we have earned to make a difference and be able to become that first step on that journey, directing people in the right direction to where they can receive the help they need.
WE NEED YOUR HELP!! In order to reach more people we're aiming to turn what was an idea and a desire to help people into a charity. However, to do this we need to raise £5000.
The money raised will aid in:
Promoting mental health awareness and suicide prevention advice in a non-clinical environment.
Allow us to provide mental health signposting drop-in services in Lion barber salons as well as other venues.
Develop our dream of creating a barber/hairdresser tailored suicide prevention and mental health awareness training.
We already successfully work with professionals in providing advice and guidance surrounding mental health issues, with your help we would like to take the next step in branching out and reaching more people.
Thank you in advance for you support and help,
The Lions Barber Collective.
