About The Social Outfit
The Social Outfit makes and sells unique high-quality fashion pieces to fund employment, education and training opportunities that help to transform the lives of refugees and new migrants.
Proceeds from the sale of our garments go towards creating pathways for women and young people from refugee and new migrant communities to find jobs, explore their creativity and enrich the community. Opportunities include jobs in our sewing workroom or retail store, and access to free training and education programs to build skills and experience.
What we deliver
For refugees and new migrants to Australia, finding a job can be one of the most daunting challenges they face as they settle. Supporting refugees and new migrants to gain relevant job skills and experience, within an environment where they feel accepted, is the first step towards transforming lives, families and communities. Our approach is simple. We deliver:
We employ refugees and new migrants in our sewing room and retail store. In three years, we have employed and trained 14 people and provided over 14,000 hours of paid, secure employment to people from refugee and new migrant communities. We have supported 13 people within our community to land jobs with other employers.
Free training, education and creative programs
We run training programs and creative events in migrant communities to connect people and help them gain skills, feel linked to their community and build aspirations. Through our programs, such as the Digital Print Project, we have inspired and supported eight sewing students to set-up their own micro-enterprises showcasing their creativity and culture, while creating an income for themselves.
How you can help
By making a donation to The Social Outfit, you will ensure more of the proceeds from our garment sales go directly into our employment and training programs. These are, ultimately, transforming the lives of women and young people from refugee and new migrant communities.
By creating pathways to gain skills, experience and employment, our programs are empowering refugees and new migrants with the confidence to transform their lives. With 100% of your donation going towards transforming lives, we can reach many more people and give them the tools they need to succeed and contribute in the community.
