'A mobile wardrobe van will deliver brand-new clothing to a rising number of
people doing it tough in regional and rural parts of Victoria.

The multi-coloured van has been modified to include a change room and shelving
that will soon be brimming with clothing sourced from more than 1,000 fashion

The initiative is a collaboration between Sydney-founded charity Thread
Together and Child and Family Services Ballarat (Cafs).

Cafs program and volunteer lead Nicole Roberts said people dealing with
hardship, including women and children escaping family violence and those
experiencing homelessness, will be able to visit the van to "shop" a brand-new
outfit at no cost.

"They come to the van, and we help them with brand new clothing which they take
away and will hopefully allow them to take those next steps in life," Ms
Roberts explained.

A referral is needed from a support agency such as Cafs to access the service.'
