Very few women experiencing family violence approach specialist services or the police in the first instance. However, they are likely to tell someone they trust. Due to the 'touch and talk' nature of salon work, hairdressers and other salon professionals often develop a strong and intimate bond with their clients where personal details are revealed.
Being listened to, believed and
given appropriate information can have a significant impact on
someone experiencing family violence. They may not have received
this kind of response elsewhere and it can encourage them to seek
help and safety from a family violence service. For many women,
this kind of early intervention can be lifesaving.
In this episode, we’re talking about family violence training and why hairdressers are such an integral role in a community free from violence, where everyone is safe.
