Our Charity Partnerships
Salonwear has been partnering with charitable organisations for the last decade in its effort to do good and give back. We started with making garments that give a portion of profits direct to charitable organisations and good causes in 2010 as well as other good initiatives.
Mental Health Foundation, 2019-Present
As mental health and wellbeing became a growing area for concern, Salonwear Direct began looking into how we could support the effort to help the nation's mental health. In 2019, a partnership agreement was signed with well-known mental health charity, the Mental Health Foundation and the designs were finalised for our new 'The One' Tunic. This new modern tunic would feature a tie-front waist, turn-up sleeves and a round neck with detail darts. A crossover item for salons, spas and modern healthcare providers, we will be donating £1.50 per every tunic sold directly to this fantastic organisation.
About the Mental Health Foundation
For over 70 years, this mental health charity has worked tirelessly to help prevent poor mental health through campaigning, influencing policy, rigorous research, challenging mental health inequalities and through creating a bank of prevention resources and tools for all stages of life and work.
Breast Cancer Haven, 2010-2017
Salonwear Direct proudly supports breast cancer awareness. In eight years, we raised over £20,000 for the Breast Cancer Haven Charity (formally known as ‘The Haven’). This was mostly achieved through sales of the Salonwear 'Haven' tunic range, which was launched in 2010. This limited edition tunic was based on our popular Ribbon Tunic. It was available in white or black and featured a hot pink trim and printed breast cancer logo on the sleeve.
It was great to partner with such a great charity, one which promotes integrated healthcare and specialises in supporting people before, during, and after their breast cancer treatment.
Our Haven Tunic was discontinued after four successful years, with the very last tunics sold in 2017. The Ribbon Tunic in Black with Hot Pink Trim is still available and continues to be a bestseller. Since 2017, Salonwear has continued to support the Breast Cancer Haven charity in a number of ways.
