Hairdressers, barbers and beauticians in Sutton will soon receive training on...
Hairdressing? Shaving? Lipstick applying?
...how to spot the signs of domestic abuse.
They will be offered the coaching as part of a new drive in the borough to tackle domestic abuse called Transform, Sutton.
The council's thought process behind this revolves around the idea that as people often share personal information with stylists and hairdressers that they might not discuss with family or friends.
Well, they probably won't now that there's a chance they'll be listening in waiting to contact the authorities!
It comes after Sutton hairdressers, beauticians and students attended an event to find out more about the scheme and sign up for training, alongside the new Domestic Abuse Commissioner for England and Wales Nicole Jacobs.
The event was organised by the NHS locally and the Local Authority, with support from the area’s domestic abuse transformation board made up of a host of local organisations.
Ah, well. It's only taxpayer money.
What a load of codswallop. How about bar tenders? Everyone pours their hearts out to them. Maybe they don't want to make people think that pub's are safe places.
Well, they already have "speak to Angela" code in some bars to help people escape from "problem" dates
But at £4 a pint I can't afford to visit a bar, guess I will just have to grin and put up in life then.
"How about bar tenders?"
I think that's just in the movies and sitcoms...
