About the Organisation

Uniform Exchange is the Kirklees community school uniform bank. 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 2021 we:
Received over 45,000 items of used school uniform from local families
Helped over 3,500 children across Kirklees with free school uniform including school coats and shoes
Gave out over 1,000 coats at a winter coat exchange
Recycled over 35,000 items of good uniform to families
Stopped over 10 tonnes of unusable uniform going into landfill by recycling through Oxfam
Washed almost 2 tonnes of good, but dirty, school uniform

We have over 15,000 items of school uniform available to access plus more arriving every day!

The charity has a small shop where non-uniform donations are sold to boost income.

‘Collecting and Recycling School Uniform, Coats and Shoes to Share with the Less Fortunate Communities of Kirklees’

Role Description

We are looking for volunteers to be trained in sorting donations, creating shelving displays and hanging clothes on rails.

The role will also include customer service and taking payments, so we will train you on the till system.

If you enjoy working at a fast pace, have a good eye for detail and want to work part of a small team, then come and meet us.

The shop is open from 10am to 3pm every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday at our warehouse site at the top of Burbeary Road in Lockwood on the Railway Sawmills Business Park HD1 3UN.
