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.
