​Invisible (Edinburgh) to pioneer 'Street Barber' campaign

Written on October 18, 2017

We are proud to announce the official launch our new 'Street Barber Edinburgh' project!

Through this campaign we will be offering a free hair cut to homeless men courtesy of our newly trained barber Sean, with a team of volunteers offering help and guidance as well as free toiletries and meal vouchers.

Based at the Leith Walk Police Box, the Street Barber service will be available on the last Saturday of each month going forward.

Our Founder Zakia said; "Invisible (Edinburgh) is all about bringing people dignity and making our guides and the wider homeless community feel like they are worthy.

"I believe the Street Barber Edinburgh is another way of doing just that. We will start with male hair cuts and if things go well, do women, make up and much more! These are exciting times for us!"

Keep your eyes peeled for more information about this exciting new initiative, coming soon!
