At Fitted for Work our vision is economic independence and empowerment for women and our mission is to help women experiencing disadvantage get work, keep work and navigate their world of work. Every woman has the right to economic security. When a woman achieves financial security, the flow on effect is transformational. Not only does she reap the benefits but so does her family, her community and ultimately the Australian economy.
Fitted for Work assists women from varied backgrounds. For example, they may be older women; survivors of domestic violence; experiencing homelessness; recently released from prison; a newly arrived migrant or refugee woman; or have a disability. They all have one factor in common. They want to work.
We develop each woman’s confidence and self-esteem as well as her skills and knowledge to obtain work through a suite of tailored pre and post-employment programs and services. We focus specifically on helping women gain employment not only because work provides financial security but also a sense of social connectedness, dignity and pride. We believe that when a woman is fitted for work, she is fitted for life.
