School Uniform Bank FAQs

We know you have lots of questions, and we will do our best to answer them! If you want to find out more about what to donate, then please check out our Donation Guide for the School Uniform Bank. Otherwise, have a look at the FAQs below. If they don't answer your question, then feel free to contact us here, or via our Facebook page.

Put simply, we collect donations of pre-loved uniform, bags & school shoes, and working with local agencies we ensure that these donations make their way to families in need in our local area. We are also given monetary donations, which are frequently used to purchase items that are required, but that we do not currently have.

We help local families in need. Although we mostly work within the Cumbernauld & Kilsyth area, we are happy to help families in the surrounding locale. We also work together with other groups where we are able to help.

Please visit the School Uniform Bank Donation Guide page for specific information on this. Whilst we value all donations, it is important that items are in good condition / working order. Also, as storage space is limited we cannot always accept all items. If you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch.

LOTS! We are always on the lookout for volunteers to help keep things running smoothly. As little or as much time as you can donate will be appreciated. Find out more here...

You could also help by picking up a pack of school shirts, socks, or a piece of uniform when you are next at the supermarket. Some of our supporters are also keen to provide a small monetary donation when we place an appeal for a specific item, such as a school blazer that we do not currently stock.

We do not accept self-referrals as we prefer to work with clients on an anonymous basis in order to protect their privacy. However, we are in contact with local schools, health visitors and social work teams, so please feel free to ask them to contact us on your behalf. Please be assured that we work anonymously.

Please take a look at our Referrals Page, which has all of the information that you will need.
