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 uniforms (non-branded) & school shoes. 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 we do not have in stock.

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. We also help local families through our referral system and with community school uniform giveaway events throughout the year. We also work closely with the local schools, supporting their in house school uniform rails/banks.

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.

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.

The simple answer is storage, we just don’t have the space to keep branded uniforms due to the large number of schools we support locally. For this reason, we only accept and supply plain jumpers/cardigans in the appropriate school colours.
