Donate your suit in Tunbridge Wells to help get homeless unemployed people back into work
With nearly 80% of homeless people wanting to get a job and support themselves, tailoring company A Suit That Fits has teamed up with three homelessness charities to help their members get back into work.
In a climate with 2.67 million people unemployed in the UK, the pressure is on to impress at interview and studies have shown that first impressions, like what you wear, affect your fundamental judgement of a person.
Until April 26th, suits can be donated nationwide to the Suit for Success campaign and donators will be rewarded with a £50 tailoring voucher. Donated suits will be gifted to homelessness charities Amber, Broadway and Emmaus, who all work with their members to help them support themselves.
Each charity offers work and learning outreach programs to their members to equip them with the skills and confidence they need to get a job and be able to fully support themselves. But they regularly find their members have nothing to wear to their interview which affects their confidence and impacts that all-important ‘first impression’. By providing them with a smart suit we are making the process just a little bit easier.
We will be collecting suits in Tunbridge Wells on Wednesday 11th April at:
Tunbridge Wells – Pantiles Chambers, 85 High Street, TN1 1XP
