The current Coronavirus pandemic has put the entire hair and beauty industry on pause.
These are very uncertain times for all of us. However, despite everything that is going on and what may still come, we want you to know that Genus is there for each and every one of you. Together we will come out of this stronger than before.
We are monitoring the situation daily and will continue to provide updates relevant to you as this situation develops.
For the majority of us, the biggest challenge during this pandemic is a financial one. With no immediate end in sight of the current lockdown, we have put together a list of key support that is available.
For registered businesses, please see our blog post on support available from the government. For further information, also visit the government page dedicated to business support advice during this pandemic.
For hair and beauty workers not registered as businesses seeking financial support, please see our blog post on Universal Credit. For further information and to apply, please visit the government's Universal Credit page.
For especially vulnerable hair and beauty workers, you may be able to receive assistance from the Hair & Beauty Charity. Visit their website for further information on their eligibility criteria and for how to apply.
This is a very difficult time for all of us, but this pandemic will end! Let's carry on persevering and supporting each other; we'll make it to the other side!
The Genus Team
