Who We Are

Everything started in 2015 when a group of local women decided to make life better for local children, young people and their families. At first we were known as Edinburgh Back To School Bank but it soon became clear that children need help with school essentials all year round so we changed the name to Edinburgh School Uniform Bank, known as ESUB for short. We became a registered charity in 2017.

ESUB is governed by a board of volunteer Trustees who oversee the strategic direction of the charity and keep on top of matters like finance, risk and safeguarding. We employ 3 dedicated part-time staff who are assisted by a fabulous team of volunteers.
