Smart Works Greater Manchester has launched its annual Christmas Appeal to help deliver a #giftofconfidence to women this Christmas.
Has life for you felt somewhat trying recently? It’s been really hard for those who have been looking for work or who have lost their job through the pandemic. Unemployment is on the rise and it’s tough getting a job out there, especially for young people.
Smart Works Greater Manchester has been giving women the ‘gift of confidence’ since 2015. Supporting unemployed women across Greater Manchester into employment, giving them the clothes and the confidence to succeed. Last year Smart Works supported 420 women – with an amazing 85% getting a job within just one month. The charity’s services support women across Greater Manchester, with career coaching and interview dressing and coaching, provided by our experienced and trained volunteers.
One woman support by the charity, Hazel, commented:
It has been a wonderful experience. The team put together an outfit that I would not have picked myself. I was happy as I looked at myself and felt more confident and more determined than ever. Absolutely fab team. You literally put Smart and Relevant back into my step.”
In lieu of buying a Secret Santa gift, an outfit for your work Christmas do or hosting a Christmas party – instead you too, can ‘give the gift of confidence’ this Christmas, so that Smart Works can help even more women on their journey to employment
Be part of another woman’s future. Help transform women’s lives.
Donations to give the #giftofconfidence can be made through the campaign’s Virgin Money Giving page.
