Empowering Women With Smart Works

Smart Works is a charity that supports women back to work after a career break. Along with mentoring, their team provides clothing and styling, giving a much-needed confidence boost and giving women the self-belief they need to shine. Smart Works has a strong track record of success with 95% of women reporting they feel more confident after preparing for an interview, and 62% going on to secure employment.

At KeriKit we are passionate about creating beautiful and practical products that work as hard as you do. Bags that - when looked after well - stand the test of time and can even be passed on once we have loved them enough, which also means less waste in the world. With this in mind, we are really excited to be partnering with Smart Works to support their vital work.

We all know the importance of how clothing and accessories can make us feel which is why we want to help pass on this feeling to as many women as possible. A beautiful bag is great for arm-candy armour when we need a little boost, especially for that all-important job interview or first day.

By donating your pre-loved KeriKit bags and workwear, you can make a dramatic difference to a deserving woman who will benefit from the unique support that Smart Works offers.

If anyone lives locally to Stockport and would like to arrange a donation drop off, please contact Smartworks Greater Manchester directly on 0161 974 0669 or greatermancheter@smartworks.org.uk

If you are ready to make a new KeriKit purchase or simply want to create some wardrobe space and give another woman a chance to transform her future, you can ship your pre-loved KeriKit bag along with any high-quality, nearly-new workwear, shoes and accessories to Smart Works. They are particularly keen to receive KeriKit laptop bags, so if you can donate one of those, we will give you 15% off your next KeriKit purchase to say a big thank you for your support.
