what we do

By providing interview-ready clothing donated by companies and professionals and offering valuable interview advice and mentoring, we empower men for employment success.

we inspire

At Suited & Booted, we believe in the power of a great outfit to transform lives. As a friendly and dedicated charity based in the Holborn area of London, we’re here to support vulnerable, unemployed, and low-income men on their journey to employment.

we make an impact

In our first year, we proudly helped 800 men feel confident and prepared for their job interviews by providing them with a suit, shirt, tie, and accessories. Now in our eleventh year, we aim to help at least 1,000 clients each year.

funding

We do not receive any government funding and are totally dependent on grants and donations for the work that we do. Our charity relies on volunteers for all aspects of our work. This keeps costs low and adds value to the generosity of funders and the service that our clients receive.

There are various ways you can donate.

support us

Are you looking for an Environmental, Social, and corporate Governance (ESG) opportunity in Central London within easy access of your City of London or West End offices? We are very grateful to our corporate supporters who help us by organising suit drives, wardrobe assistance, providing volunteer interview-trainers and mentors and administrative support.

Our Services

REFERRALS

Clients are referred to us by public agencies and charities such as Jobcentre Plus, the NHS, Crisis and London Probation when they have the offer of a job interview or work placement.

STYLING

When clients come in to be fitted, we help them find a good quality suit that fits well and looks great. Clients and volunteers also work together to find the right accessories such as ties, cufflinks and shoes.

interview training

We provide a welcoming, friendly environment where, as well as a dressing session, clients receive some thoughtful advice, interview training and support.

job ready

Our clients keep their suit and accessories. We can also assist when they get their new job by providing a few extras, such as shirts and ties, to support their working wardrobe.

#believe

Feeling great in a suit or smart clothing is an empowering experience that can boost self-esteem and confidence. A new outfit not only changes the way others perceive you but also how you see yourself. When you look and feel your best, you radiate confidence and capability.

Our current corporate supporters include:

I visited Suited and Booted prior to an interview. The staff were very helpful and really made it easy for me to pick out something that suited me as well as providing me with a list of the most common interview questions which really helped me prepare for my interview. After visiting, I felt a lot more confident going into my interview as I now knew that I would be able to make a good first impression… my interview went really well and I managed to get the job. I don’t think this would have been the case had I not of had the help of Suited and Booted.
