Volunteering with Hair & Care.

We are always welcoming new volunteers. We want to share with you all the positives and benefits of volunteering. Although volunteering is all about helping others, there are many personal benefits.

Benefits.

Volunteering can improve overall mental and physical health by reducing stress,  increasing happiness, and providing a new sense of purpose. 

It allows you to see the challenges that others face and appreciate your blessings in life. It can be a time to momentarily remove yourself from the daily pressures of life, remember what is important and be grateful.

Volunteering with Hair & Care is rewarding in many ways. Watching our participants confidence grow with each workshop, being part of a growing community which our participants see as a safe space, and personal growth and learning more with each workshop. 

What Does Volunteering Do?

Allows you to make a positive impact on others, and the community.

 

Offering your time, skills and resources to help those in need, is rewarding and fulfilling.

Gives the opportunity to connect with different people, learn new things and gain understanding and perspective of the world around you. 

Promotes empathy, compassion, and gratitude.

Benefits those you are helping but also your own well-being and personal growth.

Mindful Language.

When volunteering for Hair & Care workshops, it is important we are mindful about what language we use. This is a great skill to have across all aspects of life. Especially for hairstylists to take with them to their own salons, or workplace as a step to making the beauty industry more inclusive.

Empathy.

When volunteering you are actively pushing yourself to understand and empathise with the difficulties others face. When we don't take part in helping others we can lose empathy due to lack of understanding. Volunteering helps us to grow, educate ourselves and treat others with kindness.

Accessibility.

Hairstylists who volunteer with us will have a better understanding and awareness of what their salon/workplace needs for it to welcome blind or partially impaired people. Sharing the skills of accessible communication and mindful language with other hairstylists shall create a safe and inclusive environment within their salon.
