Lash trainer asks for industry input on domestic abuse campaign
A lash technician and trainer with a background in policing is launching a campaign linked with training to teach therapists domestic abuse awareness.
Julie Knight, founder of Elite Eyelash Extensions and Training Academy, is asking for beauty professionals to share their views on the initiative and how to make it work via a survey.
The idea is to provide training in how to recognise signs that colleagues or clients may be experiencing domestic abuse in order to refer them to support groups like Women’s Aid, mirroring schemes in parts of the US.
“A degree of awareness training will give us an opportunity to help in an informed, sensitive and meaningful way to be able to signpost to professionals who are specially trained to help,” said Knight.
The survey closes on May 18 and asks for input on every area of the scheme in order to make it as simple as possible for busy beauty professionals to engage with.
“I’m proposing that it’s e-learning; this could be a short video with an e-certificate awarded at the end with access to downloadable resources to use to signpost relevant people to support,” said Knight.
