Half of the charity’s clients are from an ethnic minority, longterm unemployed and have been unsuccessful with a large number of job applications. But Smart Works finds that 60 percent go on to get a job with their help.

To date, Smart Works has helped over 11,000 women and aims to dress 3,500 women this year across their two London offices, and additional bases in key cities across the U.K. — Edinburgh, Manchester, Reading, Birmingham and Newcastle.
