About Smart Works

Smart Works is a dynamic, high profile and fast-growing UK charity that dresses and coaches unemployed women for success at their job interview.

We empower each woman by giving her the clothes, coaching and the confidence she needs to succeed. After visiting Smart Works, 62% secure a job within a month, gaining financial independence and transforming their lives.

The Smart Works service is delivered in London, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle and Reading. Each centre is an independent charity with its own Board of Trustees, but is part of the wider Smart Works group.

Over the last eight years, Smart Works has helped 20,000 women. It is our mission that any woman who needs our service should be able to find her way to a Smart Works centre.

Smart Works has been voted Social Action Charity of the Year and is honoured to have The Duchess of Sussex as our Patron.
