Lions Barber Collective

Registered in 2017, The Lions Barber Collective is a charity with the mission of raising awareness for mental wellbeing and suicide prevention amongst men.

Its vision is to create non-clinical, non-judgemental safe spaces, where men feel comfortable to talk about their mental health and signpost them towards support and information. Charity founder, award-winning barber Tom Chapman, now wants to further the charity’s reach to encompass hair salons, beauty studios and nail bars. The Collective Pride Awards will recognise and reward people in the professional personal care industries who do great work to support the charity’s aims and endeavours.
