Helping homeless and unemployed people to clean up

A not-for-profit company in Australia has started a mobile laundry service for people who are homeless. Using two washing machines and two dryers, Orange Sky are able to clean clothes for around ten people an hour. My favourite aspect of this invaluable service is that Orange Sky work alongside organisations which provide food to local homeless people, so that their clothes can be washed while they eat.


Meanwhile, back in England, Timpsons recently announced they will provide free dry cleaning for anyone who is unemployed and needs their clothes cleaned to attend an interview.


You can read more about why Timpsons have chosen to offer this service here, as well as the reasons why the firm is one of the few UK employers to recruit ex-convicts here.
