Our aims

We aim to promote pride, dignity and self-esteem in children from families experiencing financial hardship in Edinburgh.

By providing good-quality school uniform and other important clothing and equipment, children living in poverty can attend school without stigma.

We hope our uniform packs can help improve children’s attendance, self-esteem and ability to engage with education, rather than worrying about not fitting in with their peers, or being inappropriately dressed for the weather.

We’ve even been told that by supplying school uniform to Edinburgh families in need, we’ve freed up the money they need to put food on the table.

Our vision is that every child and young person in Edinburgh has a school uniform.

Our mission is to work with donors, volunteers and partners to make sure that every child and young person in Edinburgh has a school uniform. Families tell us that receiving a uniform helps their children’s self-esteem and school attendance.
