Dress for Success Perth does more than just dress a woman, they lift them up, they support them.

Dress for Success Perth helps disadvantaged women gain economic independence by providing a network of support for individualised career development assistance.

This support ranges from interview techniques, presentation tips and providing adequate clothing for interviews and work.

Three years ago, Annette sought out Dress for Success Perth.

“I came from a home that had all sorts of issues and I guess my confidence was pretty lacking, I was just about ready to give up to be honest,” she said.

“For the first time in a long time I actually didn’t feel alone.

“[The organisation] does more than just dress a woman, they lift them up, they support them.”

This step forward for Annette saw her secure employment.

“I don’t know if I would be where I am if it was not for their support.”

Dress for Success Perth received a $36,560 Lotterywest grant towards foregone fundraising income during the COVID-19 pandemic, so that they could continue to support women in need.

Dress for Success Perth is there for those who are disadvantaged, have a disability or are long-term unemployed and are actively seeking employment.
