We are raising money to support families in need with clothing support. We will use the funds to buy essential items for children and families, these will include underwear, pyjamas and clothing items. We also need storage boxes, bags and equipment for the clothes.
Our ambition is that no family, no child or young person and no individual will face the stigma and shame associated with crisis, particularly focused on the impact that access to weather and age appropriate clothing can have. The team have been working tirelessly to sort clothes into packs ready to give out to people. Already we have supported over 700 people. Long term vision would be that we would have premises to be able to house all our donations and after Covid-19 have a space that people can come and pick their own clothes, prams and give people dignity and choice when they are in a difficult situation.
The staff and volunteers contact the people who need the support and give them a level of choice of the clothes that they require. We also can invite the people to the many online sessions we run.
We need vital funds as the Clothing Rack is getting bigger and more people to support. The need is great and funds will help us to sustain our work.
Thank you for your support.
