About the program

First Impressions Clothing Exchange is operated as a “small business” by women, and for women. It is part of Cire Training’s Small Business course and designed to build on the skills of the volunteer staff to enhance their employability opportunities.

The dedicated real-life training space, mentors women to stand tall by preparing them for full-time employment. Experienced trainers provide ongoing support to instil confidence and develop the skills necessary to enter the paid workforce successfully.

For customers, the exchange offers a selection of quality and affordable women’s clothing and accessories suitable for interviews or more formal occasions. Items can be purchased or simply hired to get the look, to get the job!
