Law firm, Blake Morgan, is the latest partner to sign up to support Working Wardrobe, a pioneering project that donates interview and work clothing to people looking for employment in South Wales.
The Working Wardrobe initiative aims to give people the confidence to take their first step towards a new career by donating free interview and workwear attire from hubs across Cardiff, Rhondda Cynon Taff, Caerphilly, and the Vale of Glamorgan.
Almost 230,000 workers in Wales were employed in sectors shut down by social distancing measures to restrict the spread of Covid-19, and in December 2020, Wales saw the highest rise in unemployment in the UK.
Working Wardrobe aims to remove the barrier caused by a lack of suitable, quality interview and office wear for people looking for work.
The project was developed by a partnership between housing recruitment agency Moxie People, housing associations Newydd Housing, United Welsh, Tai Calon Community Housing and Cardiff Community Housing Association (CCHA), along with mental health and social change charity Platfform and design agency Bluegg.
