The Beauty Backed fundraising initiative began in 2020 to support the independent businesses and entrepreneurs in the beauty industry who were directly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
After a successful launch, which saw £600,000 raised for the Hair and Beauty Charity, Beauty Backed has since evolved into a trust which aims to assist everyone and anyone who works, or who wants to work, in the beauty industry.
With beauty contributing £28 billion to the British economy each year, the Beauty Backed founder, Caroline Hirons, and trustees passionately believe this is a valuable industry which is too often ignored or overlooked.
The goal of the Beauty Backed Trust is to change this way of thinking and provide a means to support everyone in the beauty industry.

The Eve Appeal is here for everyone who wants to better understand and look after their gynae health. We’re here to prevent the 5 gynae cancers (yep FIVE – womb, ovarian, cervical, vulval and vaginal). That means raising funds to do three essential things that no other charity is doing: raising awareness and running campaigns focussed on signs, symptoms and risk factors; funding medical research in early diagnosis and new screening programmes and running a specialist nurse service Ask Eve.
Demand for Ask Eve has rocketed during the pandemic. Not surprising when it’s hard to see your GP. Donations from the kits has been invaluable. We’ve been able to scale up online and telephone support, create a Covid19 information hub, and produce new resources for groups of people who find accessing healthcare challenging.
Your donations - £70k and counting – have helped bust the taboos, challenge the stigma and campaign for better education. The fact that donations from the kit are now specifically supporting Ask Eve also means something else that’s pretty brilliant – we can put core funds into supporting medical research. So, while many research charities have been hard hit during the pandemic and have been unable to award new research funds – we’ve been able to fund a very clever research team to continue developing a risk prediction for these gynae cancers.

Education gives us the opportunity to teach the next generation.
