Your gently used workwear gives a woman a new start.
We are always in need of high quality, gently used workwear that will be suitable for use by our clients in their upcoming job interview or work.
Changes to donation acceptance times
As of November 2023, we now only accept personal donations of clothing to be made between 12pm and 3pm, Wednesday to Friday. For donations sent by courier or post, please aim for them to arrive on these days of the week.
For information on donations on behalf of corporates or collections, please see the relevant section of our website.
This change has been implemented to help us keep on top of the turnover of stock and processing of donations while continuing to deliver our much-needed services to clients. We will continue to monitor donation flows and review as necessary.
Thank you for your continued support.

Pounds in the pocket
