CHARITIES & PARTNERSHIPS.
Thread Together was founded in 2012, based on the simple idea to donate rather than dispose of unsold clothing.
Today, Thread Together clothes thousands of people across the country every week.
Joslin is proud to support Thread Together in ongoing clothing donations, keeping our excess stock in circulation, whilst also dressing women in need and supporting our local community.
We have partnered with United by Thread Together and Paypal Melbourne Fashion Festival with a shared goal of helping Australians in need, with a donation of $5000 AUD.
The Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation.
Specialised literacy support for First Nation and Torres Strait Islander children.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children continue to fall through the cracks of our education system, trapping them in a cycle of vulnerability and illiteracy.
This devastating gap is particularly evident in remote Indigenous communities, where the writing abilities of year 9 students are at year 1 level. If not addressed in the early years, this issue continues into adulthood.
In remote areas, up to 70% of Aboriginal adults are ‘functionally illiterate’. This is a national tragedy.
We believe literacy is freedom; to take control of your life, be informed, have a voice, stand up for your rights, resist exploitation, be self-confident and self-reliant. Literacy unlocks the door to learning and a world of endless possibilities.
The Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation is transforming lives through community-driven, ground-breaking and best practice literacy programs. Working in English and Indigenous First Languages, ALNF is committed to creating sustainable, long-term change.
$12 pays for a day of specialised literacy support in an Indigenous community.
Support Mental Health.
Providing a lifeline to people in Australia for over 20 years.
Around two million Australians live with anxiety, and around one million live with depression. Sadly, on average eight Australians take their lives every day.
Beyond Blue Support is available for all Australians to speak to a trained counsellor at any time.
This service is experiencing increased demand during the COVID-19 pandemic as more people reach out due to the effects of social distancing, isolation and employment insecurity.
Our trained mental health professionals listen, provide advice and counselling, and point people in the right direction to receive the support they need.
$48 supports one phone call with a trained mental health professional at any time.
Women's Community Shelters.
Providing shelter to a women who are escaping domestic violence.
In this current COVID-19 crisis, Women's Community Shelters is experiencing a 25% increase in inquiries for safe accommodation for women and children who are homeless or escaping domestic violence. Existing services were already at full capacity, with more than 50% of women seeking shelter turned away due to a lack of beds.
Across Australia, around 56,000 women are homeless each night, many with young children. Now, there are many more. Women unable to access shelters are left vulnerable, disconnected from community and support networks.
Women’s Community Shelters is dedicated to providing women and children with a safe place to stay and an opportunity to rebuild their lives.
$50 provides a hot meal and a safe, comfortable place to stay for one night.
