We've got a new BUS and we need your help to get it on the road!

Thanks to a fantastic bus donation from National Express West Midlands, we are developing a new area of our charity to take our employment support on the road - The Suited for Success Bus!

The Ask

We have already raised 50% (£25,000) of the funds so far to start our bus conversion... but we need the help of our supports to raise £10,000 towards the other 50% of funds to finish the conversion and launch the bus mid-summer.

The BIG conversion

Watch the video below to see our CEO Patricia White talk about how the bus will be converted and our plans are to take the bus to areas of Birmingham that has some of the highest levels of unemployment in the UK so people can access our support into employment.

The Mission

Our mission is to reach and support more people into employment. The bus will take the help and support we offer at Suited for Success right into the heart of hard-to-reach areas of Birmingham and the wider West Midlands that have some of the highest levels of unemployment and deprivation the country, helping them to access our support to get back into the world of work.

From community centres and spaces, local community shopping centres and schools to community events, job fairs, grassroot charity venues and more working in partnership with grassroot charities, schools, religious groups, community groups, local resident groups, local shopping centres, local businesses to help more people into employment.

The mobile project will allow more people to access our FREE support, giving unemployed people of all ages and background the tools they need to begin or continue their journey of preparation into employment equipped with the resources and skills to succeed. Our new Suited for Success Bus will see us working harder than ever to reach more unemployed people across Birmingham and the West Midlands.Read more about our work and exciting new bus project.

Get your name on our bus!

To say thank you for your donation there will be a special featured supporters collage wall area on the bus made up of the names (first and surname) of all the people and businesses who have donated to our bus conversion and launch fundraising campaign.

The collage feature wall will be a visual representation of people showing their support to help people on the their journey towards employment success. So make sure you add your full name when making your donation.

Thank you so much for helping us to help people on their journey to employment success.
