Established in 2009, Dress for Success Sydney (DFSS) is a not-for-profit, volunteer powered organisation that helps women who have fallen into financial difficulty find work and get back on their feet.
Each year, DFSS helps over 3,500 unemployed women across NSW achieve employment and financial independence by providing professional clothing, a network of support, coaching and career development tools – free of charge.
From welfare to the workforce
We aim to instill confidence, build resilience, and restore dignity; supporting women to find work and get back on their feet.
We work to bridge the gap for vulnerable women by addressing unconscious bias and creating fairness and equality for female jobseekers.
Sustainable clothing practices
Advocating for the Circular Economy and the ethical disposal of clothing, we style our clients in preloved workwear and stock generous donated by retailers that may otherwise end up in landfill.
Our Volunteer Community
DFSS is powered by more than 1,000 volunteers that support and enhance the work of our small team of staff. Every year, volunteers provide around 20,000 hours because they believe in the DFSS mission and see the direct impact on the lives of so many women.
