First Impressions clothing bank

Logo for the First Impressions clothing bankFirst Impressions is Dacorum’s smart clothing bank, set up with support from our Tenant Academy.

If you’re looking for a job or a volunteering opportunity then it’s really important to create a good impression.

If you don’t usually need smart formal wear at home, then it can be difficult to get yourself kitted out for that all-important interview.

This is why we created First Impressions. We’re building up a stock of clothes in different styles and sizes, and have volunteers to help you find the right outfit to make you feel good.

If you need a new outfit for an interview, you can ask your Housing Officer or the Job Centre to give you a referral letter with information about how you can make an appointment.

To find out more, or to donate clothes, please email tenant.involvement@dacorum.gov.uk.


Warning signCoronavirus (COVID-19): We continue to provide services online and via telephone. However, we recognise that, in some cases, you will need an appointment with an officer so we offer limited pre-booked appointments at the Forum for urgent enquiries. You may experience longer waiting times or an online response due to increased demand on our services. Please call 01442 228000 and ask for the service you require. For council service updates and other advice, please see our COVID-19 page×
