Vital clothing charity needs trustees

By Amanda Wilkins - 7 March 2024


Swindon charity Dressability is looking for new trustees to join their team.

Dressability is an independent charity which supports the clothing needs of people with disabilities and those with limited dexterity. 

For people with physical diasbilities, learning difficulties and the over 65s, finding clothes that reflect a personal style, fit well and are easy to take on or off, is often an impossible task. 

To make life easier Dressability provides a low-cost clothing adaptation and alteration service. The team discreetly alters and adapts clothing for people of all ages with learning and physical disabilities, aiming to enable their clients independence and to help them feel confident.

Dressability is one of only two independent clothing services in the UK catering specifically for the needs of disabled people. 

They work with other voluntary organisations, disability support groups, social workers and healthcare professionals. 

Dressability is a registered charity which has a board of trustees who are legally responsible for all the charity's activities and they are currently looking for new trustees to join them.

A spokesperson said: "If you have previous experience in business, or have good marketing and media skills, you may be the perfect fit for this role."

Those interested or who would like to hear more information about the role are asked to email [email protected]
