Hair & Beauty Charity Awarded Charitable Status in Scotland

Hair & Beauty Charity is delighted to announce its registered charitable status in Scotland, alongside its already registered status in England & Wales.

The charity has passed the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) charity test and received the Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) charity number SC051293.

The Scottish Charity Regulator will regulate the Hair & Beauty Charity to ensure that it always does what is best for the charity, follows its governing document, acts with care and diligence, and meets the charity’s legal responsibility.

Hair & Beauty Charity offer financial assistance to hairdressers, barbers, and beauty professionals facing difficult times due to unforeseen circumstances such as illness, bereavement, and financial hardship. Ten percent of the charity’s current beneficiaries live in Scotland.

“The charity started the application process after listening to feedback from our Scottish supporters who felt it was important for the Hair & Beauty Charity to also be registered in Scotland. Our trustees of the charity take their governance extremely seriously and welcome the new level of compliance within Scottish legal structure and charity law,” explains Hair & Beauty Charity President, Samantha Grocutt.

Hair & Beauty Charity has been a registered charity in England and Wales since 2017. It was first established in 1836 as the Hairdressers’ Orphan Fund friendly society.

“Our charity has been a lifeline for many in our profession over the years but 2020 and 2021 has thrown us into the spotlight as more and more people started to hear about what we do and how we help. We have had fantastic support from our sponsors, donators, and the industry but it’s important that we continue to be there for those in the industry who need financial assistance. Who knows how long the effects of these three lockdowns will have on our industry, so we need to keep pushing the charity awareness, and this e-cookbook is a great way to bring a bit of lightness to what has been a really hard time for many,” concludes Samantha.

Hair & Beauty Charity Cookbook is available for a minimum donation of £9.99 for a downloaded version.
