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 two!
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. Don’t need anything in exchange? You’re very welcome to simply donate uniform! And if you don’t have anything to swap, talk to your school and they will give you a gift card to swap instead. Remember it’s all free!
You can find us upstairs in The Mall, next to the children’s centre. Our opening hours are:
‘I had a great experience exchanging my daughter’s uniform. I found some really great stuff.’ Kerri, Mum from St Matthew’s Primary School
‘This is a great way of not wasting resources and saving the environment.’ Shaheen, Grandma from Norton Road Primary School
‘Awesome service – helped us out financially as we have four boys.’ Lydia, Mum from Tennyson Road Primary School
Take a look around the Uniform Exchange through this fantastic virtual tour, created for us by Striking Places:
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 with items of uniform you don’t need any more. You can swap these for items you do need.
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 63 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 get in touch before you come in to see us and we can check for you – just email Husna on email@example.com or call 07480 753905. If we cannot help you with branded uniform, we generally can help with non–branded items.

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 use 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.

To help us make sure we stock your school branded items, please arrange for your school lost property to be donated to us. Our volunteers will sort and launder it, ready for it to help a child who needs it. If we cannot help with branded uniform, we generally can help with non–branded items.
