Give a little

Help a lot

Uniform Exchange is the ONLY way children in Kirklees can get free school uniform which is why our charity is such a vital frontline service.

There’s no financial support from the council or anyone else for families facing poverty and hardship in Kirklees to buy school uniforms and with the cost of a full set of school uniform for the typical high school now more than £300 it’s simply unaffordable for thousands of people.

Every item you donate will make a difference to someone else and with more than 150 collection points across Kirklees it couldn’t be easier for you to donate school uniform, coats, shoes, PE kit, swimwear, tights, trainers, football boots, pencil cases, maths equipment, school sports bags and general school bags.

If it’s something a child will wear to go to school or need during lessons then we like it donating, but please wash it first as this saves the charity a lot of money in cleaning costs. Don’t worry about missing buttons or tiny holes as our mender can replace and repair them.

We ideally need items in good condition worn or unworn,  but anything we can’t give away we’ll pass on to Oxfam to turn into rags for recycling.

Please put your donations in plastic bags before popping them into the collection points as we’ll reuse those bags too to send the clothes out to families in need. The bigger the bag, the better.

And, finally, a massive thank you on behalf of every child in Kirklees who needs your help.

Thanks for donating but please always wash your uniform before giving it to us
