Are you getting ready for an interview? Make a great first impression by dressing the part!

First Impressions is a new project set up by Dacorum Borough Council to support local residents in need of an interview outfit. Whether you are applying for a part time or full time job, or looking to join a volunteering scheme, this smart clothing bank can help you to make a good impression.

If you don’t often wear smart or formal clothes, it can be difficult and expensive to get the right outfit. First Impressions have built up a stock of clothes in different sizes and styles, and have volunteers to help you find the right outfit.

If you are living in the Dacorum Borough area, you can receive a referral card for this service from your Housing Officer or the Job Centre. Once you have a referral, you will be given information about how to make an appointment. Referral's will be given following a short assessment based on your financial situation.  

To discuss a referral from your Hightown Housing Officer, please email
