Suited for Success has been going through an exciting development stage at the moment as we expand our project to become a stand alone charity organisation in Birmingham so we can reach and support even more unemployed people across the city.
After starting out as a small project in May 2015 in partnership with a Trussell Trust foodbank in Ladywood called Birmingham Central Foodbank we saw a surge in demands for the project and businesses wanting to support through the donation of suits and volunteering. We are now a registered charity and and will soon be moving to a new larger purpose premises in Birmingham city centre.
A new distribution centre
Over the last few months we've been putting things in place to secure our new premises including planning permissions, completing the lease and raising funds to fit out the space.
The new Suited for Success centre will be a comfortable professional environment for referred clients to receive a warm welcome and professional service. Our new centre will also allow us to engage with more businesses and support services, train up volunteers and increase the number of unemployed individuals benefiting from the Suited for Success.
