School Uniform can be expensive, even though we try to keep our Uniform as affordable as possible, for a struggling few (or the environmentally conscious) we understand that circumstances can change and parent's priorities need to be on keeping their children fed and warm.

If you are a parent who is struggling, or waiting for that next pay cheque to come through, a great alternative to purchasing new uniform is going to a swap shop.

Uniform swap shops are a new initiative gaining traction across the country that lets parents donate their old or unused uniform for the use of others who might need it more.

This system works very well for quickly growing children who can go and swap their old clothes for ones that fit for free.

Uniform Direct is committed to making sure all parents are able to clothe their children for school, that's why we're crafting a directory to better help you get what you need, or provide for those in need.

If you know of a swap shop not already on this list, please email Swapshop@uniform-direct.com and let us know.
