Celebrating 10 Years of Smart Works image

As part of our tenth anniversary celebrations, we are delighted to share a message from our patron, Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, thanking the Smart Works community for everything they do to help unemployed women in need.

“Congratulations to the entire Smart Works community on 10 incredible years of transforming lives. For the last decade, you have made an indelible mark on women across the UK who have walked into your doors in need of more than just an outfit — they needed someone to believe in them. As I’ve said before, you provide much more than a handout, at Smart Works you provide a hand held.

Over the years, I’ve seen firsthand the unforgettable smile that comes across a woman’s face when she receives the Smart Works experience of care, inspiration, and empowerment. Something changes for her in that moment, and sets her on a path she may never have thought possible.

At Smart Works, you are investing in the future of women, and as a result, the world.  I am so grateful to all of you who make this work possible each and every day. Celebrating you from across the pond and wishing you another amazing decade!”
