Suiting Program

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

Clients are normally referred by Referral Agencies.  These can include job training and placement agencies, government departments or community-based organisations that support disadvantaged women.

Many of Dress for Success Sydney clients will have been out of work for a long time.  Some may never have had a job, while others may be coming out of prison or detox programmes, or may be recently arrived skilled migrants to Australia.
