A community event is being held at Cutter Barbers in South Norwood next month, where young BAME men can receive a free haircut.

Following a successful funding application made to Healthwatch Croydon, the community event will coincide with Black History Month and World Mental Health Day.

The event is being organised by community development workers of Off The Record, a youth counselling charity. It is an extension (no pun intended) to their community project “Mind My Hair, Hear My Mind”.

The event is aimed at 16-to-25-year-olds from the BAME community who are welcome to a free haircut, a free digital portrait taken by a professional photographer and complimentary refreshments.

This will be an opportunity for members of the community to share their views and experiences with Croydon NHS services.

The event will be held on Sunday October 8 at Cutter Barbers, 52 Portland Road, South Norwood SE25 4PQ, from noon to 4pm.
