Support our work
Dress for Success Greater London’s work is made possible by the generosity of our partners and sponsors. Together we make a difference to the lives of women across London and beyond.
We are always looking to build relationships with new corporates and brands to enable us to achieve our goals. There are many ways that your organisation can support our work:
Support our major fundraising events such as our Power of Women celebration where you can sponsor an award or buy tickets. We also are in need of pro-bono support by way of public relations support, food & beverages and venues. You can also support us by purchasing tickets for our Fashion and Philanthropy Speaker Series that is held several times per year.
Organising a clothing drive in your office, building or even across your company is a great way to support Dress for Success Greater London and the women we serve, while also raising awareness for our cause.
You can also host fundraising and awareness events in your office or organisation, such as a coffee morning or golf day, or something related to International Women's Day. Depending on availability, a member of our team may also be able to attend your event and present about our work, or we will be able to provide materials to support this.
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.
We are always happy to work with companies looking to add opportunities to their corporate employee volunteering programme. Our FastTrack service allows organisations a 'set and forget' approach allowing employees to book their volunteer days directly around their own work commitments without a central coordinator maintaining a rota or schedule.
Sponsor a dressing
Our Sponsor a Dressing campaign can be organised at Corporate Level through your CSR Strategy and Women's Network or on an individual basis, and allows a woman or group of women's success to be supported through our process.
By sponsoring a dressing, your organisation enables us to provide professional clothing and interview coaching to prepare a woman for interview, and to provide support as she returns to the world of work.
Our Sponsor a Dressing campaign is aimed at corporate organisations that wish to establish a strong social responsibility.
For a suggested donation, organisations are able to provide the financial support needed for us to be able to deliver our services to more women.
It costs £200 to support a woman through our pathway to success including the provision of interview clothing and coaching, capsule wardrobe for starting work and ongoing support as part of our Professional Women’s Group (PWG).
You can choose to sponsor any number of dressings for 2018 and in return, we will promote your organisation’s generosity as part of our Success Supporters Hall of Fame:
on our website;
on our social media feeds, and;
in our boutique on a specially placed plaque.
Professional Women's Group
Our Professional Women's Group (or PWG) is held monthly providing ongoing support to former clients who have successfully secured employment. We organise corporate speakers to facilitate sessions on various topics related to ongoing professional development and coaching.
The PWG is an important platform for our former clients to peer network and continue to succeed in life.
