Donate for Success & Keep Valuable Community Service Open!


The Newcastle-Hunter showroom of Dress for Success Sydney is on the brink of closure due to a funding crisis.

 

The charity is appealing to the Newcastle-Hunter community to rally and support their impactful work by helping to crowdfund $75,000 by 4 September – the cost to keep the showroom doors open for one year.


Operating in Sydney since 2010, Dress for Success Sydney saw the need to expand employment support services to the Newcastle-Hunter region, and with community support, opened a popup showroom in 2019.


Now, with a permanent showroom space in Broadmeadow, the branch supports more than 200 women a year through their signature interview styling and presentation skills offering, career support workshops and one-on-one job preparation services.


The volunteer-led organisation shifted to online service delivery during the pandemic and added Virtual Styling to the mix, a program that has since expanded to deliver quality clothing to women in regional New South Wales. Newcastle-Hunter volunteers were pivotal during the 2021 lockdowns, running the Style Delivered program: selecting, packing, and sending clothing parcels to women for work, prison release and disaster relief.
