Dress for Success: Mornington Peninsula Job Support Centre

It is often said that the best way to build self esteem and confidence is with accomplishment.  The more we accomplish, the better we feel about ourselves.

For some, however, long term unemployment can impact a woman’s sense of accomplishment.  It’s more likely to bring with it poverty, disadvantage, poor self esteem and low of motivation. These women need encouragement and support to take the steps they need to move into paid work.  

“This grant will allow Dress for Success Mornington Peninsula to have a Career Centre housed in the same premises as our key service of Dressing and Styling women to prepare them for work.  Through the workshops and ongoing career support provided at the centre, the potential for each woman to achieve financial independence and economic security will be greatly enhanced.”

– Marian Gandy, President
