Punk Against Poverty launched its free school uniform bank in January 2020 and is currently providing a large number of families in need across Torbay and Exeter, alongside working with schools to create more family friendly policies on uniform.
We have been relying on donations of outgrown good condition school uniform which is then matched up and passed on free of charge to families struggling to afford the high costs of school uniform. Despite having a large stock of uniform there are still some items we are missing which we would like to purchase to ease the financial pressure on the families we are helping. We are also struggling to meet our overheads at this time which enable us to make the uniform bank possible. We are seeking donations to help with these costs and to ensure that no child in our area will miss school because of not having the correct uniform.
