Fresh: Ascot to support Smart Works Reading

Fresh: Ascot are delighted to announce that we've teamed up with Smart Works Reading as our partner charity for Fresh: Ascot 2019. Smart Works Reading is a charity that supports some of the most vulnerable women in society, working alongside referral partners to give women the best chance of succeeding at their job interview and moving on with their lives. They provide high quality interview clothes and interview coaching to unemployed women in need. Smart Works Reading has been operating for four years and has helped over 1,200 women.

Sarah Burns MBE, Chair of Smart Works Reading writes...

We are passionate about the service we deliver and the high-impact intervention we use to build self-confidence and belief. Every day we see the transformation our service gives to women and are proud that 60-68% of the women we see successfully go on to secure employment. Building partnerships locally has played a huge part in helping us support more women across the Thames Valley. We are thrilled to be chosen as Fresh: Art Fair Ascot’s charity partner this year and look forward to an amazing event in September.
