As today is an international celebration of women, we hope you will join Get Living in supporting Smart Works, a fantastic charity helping women who are currently unemployed to build their confidence and prepare them for the working world.

Smart Works supports with women who are referred from job centres, homeless shelters, prisons, care homes, and mental health charities, providing them with training, self-belief and practical tools to succeed at interviews.

They also provide interview clothing and so we are asking our Get Living staff and East Village residents to support a clothes drive.
