Donate Time

We have over 50 volunteers who play key  roles in supporting us transform the lives of clients. Our service is volunteer led and relies on those who dedicate their time regularly.

We believe that it can be as rewarding for the volunteers as it is for the clients to be involved in an organisation that is promoting self-belief, confidence and positive encouragement to women.

There are five main volunteer roles at Smart Works. The majority of these occur during our working hours which are Monday-Friday (unless otherwise specified). Please note that as of July 2019 we are currently operating a waiting list for dressing and coaching volunteers, as we have received an influx of applications.
