Brand new clothes for anyone with insecure immigration status
Thread Ahead tackles two issues: a lack of sustainability in the fashion industry and poor access to quality clothing faced by refugees and asylum seekers. We provide brand new clothes which would otherwise go to waste, and redirect them to those in need.
In June 2022 there were 117,945 people awaiting an initial decision on their asylum claim. 72% have been waiting for more than 6 months. People seeking asylum are banned from working and are provided with less than £6 per day from the Government to cover the costs of their basic necessities.*
