Our Mission is Simple

To deliver new, good quality clothing and shoes to people in our community who are doing it tough.

We believe that we can restore dignity and hope for men, women and children who are going through a difficult time by providing the opportunity to choose a complete wardrobe of new clothes.

Watch this 5 minute video to learn how we fight fashion waste and re-distribute new clothes to people in our community who need our help.

 

New clothes, rescued from potential landfill, available at no cost to those who need it most.

To date, we have partnered with 100 charities who we collaborate with to access to people in need.

More than 8 million dollars worth of clothes have been donated from brands such as Seafolly, Camilla & Marc, Specialty Fashion Group, The Iconic, General Pants, Bendon, and many more. To date, we have reached over 150,000 people across Australia.

Our vision is to clothe 200,000 people annually by 2020 across Australia.

We are currently supporting the people who are homeless, youth at risk, Indigenous communities, survivors of domestic violence, refugees or long term unemployed. People in need of comfortable clothing to enable them to feel safe and warm, or people seeking clothing for a new job.

Some people are more likely to be in the lowest 20% of incomes due to their circumstances.⁠
These include:⁠
• people who are unemployed (77% are in the lowest 20% of incomes),⁠
• single parents (36%),⁠
• older people (over 65s, 39%),⁠
• People born overseas in non-English speaking⁠
countries (24%) and⁠
• people living in rural, regional or remote parts of South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria or New South Wales (more than 25% in each case).⁠

Being able to select clothes that reflect who we are as individuals is not just about fashion, and it should not be a luxury. ⁠
⁠
We are firm believers that new clothes help restore people’s dignity and self-confidence which form part of the identity we present to the world.⁠

SINGLE PARENTS AND THEIR KIDS ARE AT HIGH RISK OF POVERTY: Over a third of single parents live in poverty and 41% of children living in single parent families live in poverty compared to 13% of children in couple families.⁠

Thread Together helps those who are living below the poverty line, and aims to restore hope and dignity for those single parents who are doing it extremely tough, by providing the opportunity to choose new clothes that suit that their circumstances as well as their personal style and taste.⁠
