About

The model behind Dress for Work is based on goodwill. Quality business attire is donated by individuals, or through clothing drives within companies and organisations including schools, government agencies, clothing manufacturers, small businesses and large corporations.

Our clients include men who are suffer mental health problems or physical disabilities, long term unemployed, refugees, as well as men who have recently been released from prison. Dress for Work caters for all ages and demand for the service is increasing. In the 2014-2015 financial year, Dress for Work assisted 1,500 clients, 400 of whom have found employment.

Clients are referred by community organisations, Job Active agencies, Centrelink, hospitals, high schools and  TAFE colleges from as far afield as the Central Coast and Wollongong. Referral forms  can be found under the ‘Refer a client’ tab and are also available on the Metro Assist website (www.metroassist.org.au). While we rely predominantly on clothing donations,  monetary support is also  essential to the day-to-day operational costs of Dress for Work – if you are interested you may like to consider a donation.
