Free laundry service to address inequalities

We are keeping our promise of poverty proofing our services and tackling inequalities by offering a free laundry service to anyone who has a job interview and in need of clean clothes to wear.

Our on-site laundry has introduced a new scheme in a bid to support those who are less well-off and to help them make a first good impression at their job interview.

This new service which started on 6 May 2024 is one of the ways in which we are delivering on our promises to the communities it serves.

Lisa Grandcourt, Head of Facilities, said: “Creating that first good impression is an important part of being successful at interview. We know that not everyone can afford freshly cleaned and ironed clothes. This is why we are offering this service so that no one should feel disadvantaged by their appearance and to give them an equal opportunity to gaining employment. All we ask is that you show your interview invite.”

People using this free service can choose from having one pair of trousers and one shirt or blouse laundered. Other options include one skirt and one blouse or top, or one dress.

Garments need to be placed in a bag and brought into the RDaSH laundry on a Tuesday between 7:30am and 2:30pm and they will be ready to collect the following Thursday between 7:30am and 2:30pm.

The laundry service is based on the Tickhill Road Hospital Site, off Weston Road, Balby, DN4 8QN. It is located towards the main hospital reception and follow the signs for laundry services.

For more information please ring us on 03000 211447.
