At Orange Sky, we have 29 vans around Australia that operate at around 250 locations each week. But what happens when those vans aren’t washing clothes for people doing it tough?Social Impact Washing is our way of making the most of our mobile laundry vans, while also providing another way to connect friends with the community.
What is Social Impact Washing?
We've learnt through the experiences of our friends that transitioning back into employment is not always easy.Our Social Impact Washing program is a vehicle for us to offer support to our friends, while providing skills and experience that will assist them in finding longer term employment opportunities.
How does it work?
With support from our national labour hire partner Programmed, we are able to offer friends the opportunity to take part in a 13 week training and employment placement with Orange Sky.Friends will be supported by volunteers to learn skills that can be used in a variety of workplaces in the future.At the end of the placement, friends will leave with a recent employment history, references and ongoing support from Programmed to find further opportunities.
Can I get involved?
Absolutely! There’s so many great benefits in being part of our Social Impact Washing program – but the main one is knowing that you’ll get your laundry done and help our friends at the same time. There's a few ways you can get involved:- Get your washing done as a customer- Help us by volunteering- Become a supporter
