East Lothian School Uniform Bank was set up by a local parent and has been further developed with support from Carefree Kids and Support from the Start.

Our aim is to ensure that every child in East Lothian has access to a suitable school uniform.

With this in mind, we are looking for donations of new or used good quality school uniform items. We are asking parents that as it nears the end of term, if they have any good quality items that they no longer have the use for to consider donating them to us.

We have also set up an Amazon Wishlist where new items can be purchased and donated to us.

The School Uniform Bank is in the process of building up a stock of school uniform items that will then be used to assist families who are referred on to us.

We would be grateful if this information can be passed onto parents/carers of children attending your school.

Please do not hesitate to contact us via email or Facebook if you require any additional information.

With thanks
Paula Edmond
Project Manager, Carefree Kids
