Many of the parents have broken down and cried with relief receiving the uniform packs as financial hardship is a huge issue.
New clothing from ESUB has made children feel more confident and less self-conscious about attending school. Parents had reported that when their children have been in old or ill-fitting clothes, they have felt uncomfortable to be at school and sometimes reluctant to go at all.
Edinburgh School Uniform Bank is a vital service which makes a huge difference to the lives of vulnerable families.
