Helping children
in hardship
hold their heads high

Edinburgh School Uniform Bank

We believe that every child deserves to look and feel smart at school, to feel that they belong, and to avoid the negative effects of hardship
on their wellbeing and education.

7,118 packs of uniform given
to youngsters since 2015

We distribute bespoke packs of new school uniform to hundreds of Edinburgh families each year, as well as supplying nearly-new uniform to schools and community groups. Unfortunately, the need for our services is growing fast.

By supporting our work, you can help a wee one feel included, enabling them to fit in with their classmates. You can be the difference between a teenager attending school and engaging with their education or staying away. You can give a child the confidence to work hard in the classroom and take part in activities, instead of fretting about not having a gym kit.

“The uniforms are such good quality and enable the children who receive them to fit in with all the other children at school. They don’t stand out because they are wearing poor quality clothing or because they don’t have a school uniform at all. The uniform bags help remove some of the stigma of poverty.” – A referring professional
