FG FORM PARTNERSHIP WITH
Hair Stylists aren’t always simply there to cut hair!
Hair Stylists aren’t always simply there to cut hair; they often act as confidants and a sympathetic ear.
Sometimes, when it comes to Domestic Violence, the salon environment is the only place where people can feel safe enough to open up.
Francesco Group take this role seriously and the well-being of our clients and staff is of the utmost importance. As such, we have recently partnered with Staffordshire Women’s Aid to deliver Domestic Violence Training to teams across the whole Group.
Staffordshire Women’s Aid are delighted to be working with Francesco Group through the delivery of the Change That Lasts – Community Ambassador Training #Ask Me; raising awareness of domestic abuse and the myths and stereotypes surrounding it, building skills around how to respond to any survivor who shares their experience of domestic abuse and the resources to be able to offer signposting to specialist services if required. It is so encouraging for a local organisation to be so caring about their customers and community in this way.
Janine Plant, Ask Me Coordinator – Staffordshire Women’s Aid
Thank you Francesco Group, for the support you have given to our work and our charity over the years
Dickie James, CEO – Staffordshire Women’s Aid
With 1 in 4 women experiencing domestic abuse/violence in their lives, our aim is to eventually have one Domestic Violence Ambassador in each of our salons, to support any client or team member who may need help.
It is important to us that we can be there to support our team members and our clients in whatever way they may need. With so many women possibly experiencing domestic abuse in their lifetime, having the tools at hand to support anyone that opens up to us could make such a big difference to so many lives. We are so thankful that Staffordshire Women’s Aid have partnered with us to deliver this training.
