Behind the Mask offers hair and beauty professionals’ FREE access to online learning that may help to spot the signs that someone is experiencing domestic abuse and guide on how to respond in the best way. It’s not about intervening or interfering, but knowing how to truly help someone who may really need it. It’s 3 short videos that take 22 minutes to complete. You will receive a certificate and support book to download on completion.
1 in 4 women will experience abuse from a partner or ex-partner at some time in their life. 2 are killed each week. They may be our clients, colleagues – even family and friends. Seeing the signs, offering a kind word and providing information on how to access professional support may change or save someone’s life.

It’s included as a learning requirement in hair and beauty courses offered by over 200 hair and beauty training schools and colleges.
