Uniform project

We want to ensure every child has access to school uniform, so we set up a free school uniform 'bank'.


The project provides new & used uniforms and other school items throughout the entire school year. (Items are typically donated by school parents, PTA’s and businesses).   
Unused school uniforms are taken to recycling centres.   

Our Mission:
• Meet the needs of the marginalised and vulnerable -
      provide a free school uniform helping young people       integrate into their local community.
• Reduce the threat of bullying.
• Increase community involvement.
• Provide ‘Volunteers Experience’ as a step back into

Families, organisations, statutory bodies, schools, can request uniform via facebook messenger or email For more information.

Plese note that all of our hubs and drop off points will be closed from Friday 23rd December 4pm to Tuesday the 3rd of January 2023 9.30am for the festive period. We will also not be replying to any Facebook messages or emails during that period. This will give all our volunteers a well-deserved rest. Many Thanks The Uniform Team

Do you have SCHOOL UNIFORM to donate?

Whilst we will aim to meet all the requests as best as we can, our stock is reliant on donations, so any donations are greatly received. We would ask that when applying for uniform if you have any old uniform that is too small that it be donated to us, however this is not a requirement.
