Our Projects

The Uniform Exchange is only now open for Click & Collect orders due to the latest Covid restrictions. Please order your school uniform from our Uniform Exchange website, and you will be notified when your order is ready to collect. Try to speak to your school family worker if you need help with online ordering.

Our wonderful volunteers have been sorting through the uniform to help us make sure we have as much available as possible. As always, our stock depends on what we have received so please check back if you can’t find what you need.

You can let us know in the comments box with your order if there are any specifics we should know about when choosing the uniform. All orders must be made online.


We are still able to receive donations during our opening times.

You can find us upstairs in The Mall, next to the children’s centre.
