Here at Jersey Beauty, we pride ourselves on our no nonsense values. We are challengers of misconception and we don’t buy into industry hype. We also believe that giving is good and we strive to make a difference everyday to our team, to our customers and to those in need of a helping hand.

We also believe that being helpful, kind and charitable has somewhere along the way been misused as a handy PR tool for companies and organisations to hold up and use for their own gain. Here at Jersey Beauty Company, that’s not so. Our values are instilled in us daily, so whether it’s making a cup of tea and buying a member of the team’s favourite biscuits or lending a hand or listening ear for some time, we know that this culture radiates outwards to our customers and beyond.

Corporate Social Responsibility isn’t really a phrase you’ll hear much at Jersey HQ because we believe kindness and charity falls deeper than that. We know our responsibilities to those around us and we live and work in this realm everyday. Our eyes are constantly spying opportunities to use our influence wisely and help those in need. Naturally, this desire has led us to supporting many a cause over the years.

Take a look at our most recent charitable impacts and maybe you will decide to help too?

Jersey Beauty Company x Ankara Refugees Ministry

We recently made the decision to partner with Ankara Refugee Ministry, a charity that is helping to redefine the ongoing refugee crisis in Turkey.

Turkey hosts the world’s largest refugee population amounting to a total of 3.5 million. The majority of these seekers of refuge come from Syria, a country that has been devastated by armed conflict since March 2011. Syria is ranked last on the Global Peace Index, making it the most violent country in the world due to the ongoing war. Some 7.6 million people have been internally displaced and around 5 million people now come under refugee status. Other refugees in Turkish camps come from more war-torn areas such as Afghanistan, Iran and Iraq.

  • 90% of refugees reside in urban areas like Ankara, the capital of Turkey.
  • 70% of refugees in Turkey are women and children.

Ankara Refugee Ministry helps refugees living in Ankara by meeting both short-term and long-term needs.

  • Short term: they give out food parcels to 500 refugee families a week as well as donated clothing, blankets, hygiene kits, childrens coats and more. They also give access to first aid, simple health services and basic mediations.
  • Long term: they provide language classes in English and Turkish. They run friendship clubs and art classes.

But the greatest long-term project that Ankara Refugee Ministry run is the Jakari Sewing Project....

Jakari Sewing Project focuses on empowering refugee women by teaching them specialized sewing skills. After six months of training, the women are able to create quality purses, bags, cases and more with a signature design using traditional Turkish rugs. The women are then compensated for their products and can begin making an income.

In December 2017, a group of women graduated from the project and were each gifted a sewing machine of their own to empower them further. “This year, we will work to develop the course to equip more women for careers in the textile industry, while selling products locally and shipping internationally…” 

As Jakari business grows and expands, Ankara Refugee Ministry are able to help more refugee women create a sustainable life in Turkey, for themselves and their families.

Jersey Beauty Company x Elpitha Hope UK

We recently donated some of our income to help Julie, our amazing Customer Service Manager reach her target for Elpitha Hope UK.

Charity Circle 07

Most of you will know Julie from speaking to her when placing a phone order or asking us a query or from her great advice on a skin complaint on our Live Chat. She helps all our lovely customers with their orders and keeps things in order for us too! Julie ran the Liverpool Half Marathon 2018 for Elpitha Hope UK. Elpitha is Greek for ‘hope’. It’s a wonderful charity that provides help and support to the public by encouraging family life and supporting those in economic and social crises in Greece. They also provide a venue for the refugee communities. Julie raised a total of £1,000, so well done to our resident runner Julie!
