In March 2018, AnglicareSA and Thread Together launched an Australian first — mobile wardrobes delivering brand new clothes directly to people in need. Our two vans are on the road daily, servicing metropolitan Adelaide, as well as rural SA. People can also be referred to visit our Thread Together Clothing Hub in North Adelaide to choose a new set of clothes.
The fantastic program has a positive impact on many people’s lives, including those experiencing/at risk of homelessness; Aboriginal communities; refugees; survivors of domestic violence, and the long-term unemployed.
How does the program work?
The Thread Together crew sources new clothing and accessories from more than 20 partnering Australian fashion houses with the help of TOLL logistics. Using our mobile wardrobes, we then take these items to where they’re needed.
Brand new shirts, shorts, pants, dresses, shoes, socks and undies — you name it! Since 2018, Thread Together has supported more than 10,000 South Australians.
The Thread Together program wouldn’t be possible without a dedicated team of volunteers. These amazing people sort; stock; drive the van; assist clients; and most importantly, help restore confidence.
This program is about more than supplying clothing. It’s about instilling independence and enabling dignity.
