A NOTE FROM THE BEAUTY BACKED TRUST
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.

A NOTE FROM THE BRITISH SKIN FOUNDATION
The British Skin Foundation is the only UK charity that raises money to fund research into all types of skin disease, including skin cancer.
Two in three British people currently suffer from or have suffered with a skin disease at some point during their lifetime. Whilst some skin conditions are manageable, others are severe enough to kill.
We are here to help change that by raising money for vital research to help find cures and treatments for common, but still distressing skin conditions like eczema or acne, through to potential killers like malignant melanoma (skin cancer).
In the 25 years since its inception, the British Skin Foundation has funded more than 400 projects investigating all types of skin disease.
Whilst we are dedicated to raising money for research, we also aim to increase awareness of skin diseases in the wider community. We're committed to educating people about different skin conditions, helping to reduce stigma and promote understanding.
The British Skin Foundation receives no statutory funding and relies completely on donations. Read about the impact of our work here.
