Working Wardrobe is a clothing store for men and women who have secured an interview for paid employment but do not have anything suitable to wear.

On referral, the customer will receive a one to one appointment in the town centre store, choosing an outfit and accessories to keep at no cost to them.  They’ll also get final interview preparation advice. If they’re successful in the interview, they can return to the store and get additional clothing and more importantly be given work support for as long as they need it.

This project is being managed by Bolton at Home, and the Working Wardrobe shop can be found at 56 Bradshawgate (next to Primark).

At the moment they have plenty of stock, but I have agreed to coordinate a clothes collection at the start of the next academic year (further details to follow).

If you have any questions or wish to refer anyone, then please contact the Project Officer, Dawn Juson, Tel: (01204) 329545
