Setting up a non profit for mobile barbers and hairdressers, would this help anyone?

I have 2 boys 4,5 with ASD. When I want my boys to have a nice haircut (better what I give) I take them to the local barber and its always difficult.

Do you think this is a good idea:

I am a Web Developer and I'm currently building a website that allows Barbers and Hairdressers to come to your house.

The website is non-profit and its geared to help people with disabilities/special needs look their best whether for their birthday or any special event.

Would this help anyone a part from me?

Thanks for reading

    Hi @hmmmum

    That is a fantastic idea.  I was a special needs teacher in Swansea, and there is a hair dresser there who works with lots of children with Autism.  Many of the parents at the school that I taught at booked him to cut their children's hair as he took time to get to know the child before doing anything else.

    I think it is a much needed service.

    Best of luck
