Join Carers NSW Womens Clothing Drive to support Women to thrive economically

Thursday 29th Sep

Dress for Success is a global not-for-profit organization that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.

 

Dress for Success Sydney offers free clothing, styling and presentation skills to cis and trans women wanting to enter or return to the workforce or needing good clothes to present themselves well at an important life event. We also provide clothing for everyday life.

           Job interviews

           Starting a new job

           Starting a work, university, school or TAFE placement

           Court appearances

           On release from prison

           Affirming your gender as a woman

           Important life events such as funerals, graduations, job networking events.

Style Delivered is a personal styling service by Dress for Success Sydney that sends clothing to women, throughout NSW, wanting to enter or return to the workforce. Dress for Success Sydney also supports women affected by devastating bushfires and floods and now offers Virtual Styling!

 

Carers NSW currently has several employment support projects supporting women carers to upskill, retrain and enter or re enter the workforce. These projects will refer carers to Dress for Success if they need assistance with sourcing clothing for work and we would love to give back to such a wonderful organisation.

 

Join this donation drive by donating gently used, nearly-new professional attire, or you can make a monetary contribution.

The donation drive will go until 9th of November 2022 so you have plenty of time to go through your wardrobe. Please bring donated clothing into the Sydney, Newcastle or Coffs Harbour offices as collection points. 

 

What to donate:

As new, very gently used, or new items only – think: ‘Would I still wear this? Would I wear it for work or to go out and feel special? Would I give or lend to a friend? Is it current or classic fashion? If the answer is yes, we are your people!

1. Smart, business suitable clothes suitable for interviews or the workplace across all industries and smart, casual, or special occasion attire.

2. Other things we need:

          Designer and luxury brand names of all styles including athleisure and multipurpose appropriate work clothing and accessories

          High-quality designer, quality costume  jewellery

          Handbags and shoes, current fashion, new or gently used

          Quality +16 sizes

 

Please help with our sustainable styling approach:

          No fast fashion or mass-produced/discount brand jewellery

          If it is not clean and in good repair, we will not be able to use
