Western Sydney MRC Teams Up with Newtown-Based Social Enterprise

Share This Post

Western Sydney MRC has paired with Newtown-based social enterprise, The Social Outfit, to run an eight-week program for young girls.

The Social Outfit is a social enterprise based in Newtown that functions to promote employment within the fashion industry amongst people from refugee and migrant backgrounds. This includes training in clothing production, retail, design and marketing; empowering people through the development of skills whilst working to eliminate risks of social isolation.

Jess from The Social Outfit will join us at our Liverpool office every week, facilitating classes with our group of young girls that promote confidence, socialisation and the development of new skills. Participants will have the opportunity to learn different styles of design through various art forms and will eventually have their individual projects collated into a pattern that will be turned into a beautiful piece of fabric. The collaborative print will be used to produce unique garments that will then be modelled by the young girls!

We are very pleased to be able to provide this opportunity to the community. Should you wish to support this or any other youth program, contact Sarah on 0439 217 927.
