Did you know that 42 tonnes of clothing goes into landfill in Luton every year?
Reusing school uniform is a great way to cut this down whilst saving the precious materials such as cotton and synthetics that are costly to the environment to make. It can also be a great way to save a bob or too!
Anyone can use the Exchange, just come into our friendly shop with uniform items you have finished with and swap them for uniform you need. And if you don’t have anything to swap, talk to your school and they will give you a gift card to swap instead. And remember it’s all for free!

We provide free good quality second hand and new school uniform to all families in Luton through our Uniform Exchange.
To get uniform come down to our Uniform Exchange in….with items of uniform you don’t need any more. You can swap these for items you do need.
You can find us in the mall upstairs by the children’s centre.
We’re open at the following times:
If you haven’t got any uniform to bring you can swap a uniform gift card instead.
You can get gift cards in 2 ways:
- If your school or agency you work with is a Level Trust partner, please talk to your family worker or link worker and they will be able to provide you with a gift card. For a list of who our partners are, please click here.
- If you do not have contact with a partner organisation please contact us directly. We have a limited number of gift cards we can supply ourselves.
There are 67 schools in Luton, all with at least 1 branded item and some with many more. We try our best to stock branded items for all schools, but because we rely on donations, we are not always able to do this. To find out if we have what you need, feel free to give us a call before you come in to see us on 01582 797347 and we can check for you. If we cannot help you with branded uniform, we generally can help with non –branded items.

Due to lack of funds and premises we are currently unable to deliver this project, but are looking to get it up and running again in the new year.
Families can get school uniform by coming into the Uniform Exchange with uniform they have finished with and swapping it for uniform they need. Any family is welcome to access the exchange.
If you have families who do not have anything to exchange, you can refer them to us via our gift card system. Schools and organisations in partnership with us will receive uniform gift cards which families can bring into the exchange to swap for a full new uniform.
