About the organisation
Uniform Exchange are community recyclers. We serve the local community by recycling out-grown school uniform across Kirklees providing families with financial challenges and in crisis with FREE school uniform. We do this by encouraging families through the primary and secondary schools to recycle and donate their child’s out-grown school uniform to the project. The service is available to all families in Kirklees no matter what their circumstances.
In 2016 we:
Received over 15,000 items of school uniform from participating families
Helped 540 children across Kirklees with free school uniform including school coats and shoes
Gave out over 100 coats at a winter coat exchange
Recycled over 5000 items of good uniform to families
Stopped over 2.6 tonnes of unusable uniform going into landfill by recycling through Oxfam
Washed almost 900kg of good, but dirty, school uniform
