We are looking for a qualified barber or hairdresser to offer our homeless clients a haircut at our Bridgwater Drop-in service.

Detailed description

Arc house, support and enable homeless people in Taunton & Bridgwater to maximise their potential, and be inspired & empowered by their own strengths.

Homeless people have many challenges to face, loss of self-esteem being one. Something as simple as a haircut and shave can make a big difference to feeling more positive.

We are looking for a qualified barber or hairdresser to come to our Bridgwater Drop-In once a month and offer our clients a regular trim. 

The Drop-in is open every Monday, Thursday & Friday morning from 9.30-11.30.

We need people who are:

  • Over 18  
  • Qualified barber or hairdresser
  • kind
  • friendly
  • empathetic
  • Passionate about helping people feel good about themselves? 


This is an opportunity to make a real difference to people’s lives by helping boost their self-esteem. Along the way you’ll:  

  • meet new, like-minded people  
  • improve your communication skills  
  • build your own confidence  
  • learn about the range of issues affecting our clients  
  • inspire others to improve their lives  


Out of pocket expenses reimbursed. 


Everyone is welcome   

At Arc we are not all the same. We come from all walks of life and a wide variety of backgrounds. We draw on these differences in who we are, what we’ve experienced and how we think to create services that work for everyone. We celebrate the diverse and inclusive community that is Arc, empowering clients, staff and volunteers to connect, belong and grow.
