“We have referred a large number of families to the school uniform bank over the past year. The form is straightforward to complete with parents and carers. A lot of thought and care is put into the packs.”

PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR OPERATIONS ARE CURRENTLY SUSPENDED DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC. WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING REQUESTS FOR UNIFORM UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for details on how to refer a young person for a uniform pack.
We can only provide uniform for children and young people who attend a City of Edinburgh school. There are a number of uniform banks in other parts of the country; each local group is run independently.
Please note that we do not accept referrals directly from families/individuals; referrals must be made through a suitable professional or community group, such as:
- social worker
- pupil support teacher
- family support worker
- Women’s Aid
- Youth group
We do not supply school shoes, although we sometimes provide gym shoes or trainers. Grants for school shoes (and jackets) can be requested from the Edinburgh & Lothians Trust Fund.
City of Edinburgh Council provide grants to help buy school clothes to families who meet certain criteria. See the Council website for details.
