Hairdressers are uniquely placed to respond to family violence, but is it ethical to ask them to?

A number of programs have emerged in Australia in recent years that aim to train salon workers to act as informal helpers around family violence and abuse. For example, in Victoria the Eastern Domestic Violence Service’s HaiR-3Rs program has been designed to train hair and other salon workers to recognise, respond to, and refer clients who disclose experiences of family violence. In Queensland, the Hairdressers with Hearts program has been launched to target both domestic violence and elder abuse.
