Second hand uniforms
The Council usually works with Churches Together South Tyneside, the Key Project and the Salvation Army during the summer holidays to collect and recycle school uniforms.
These uniforms are normally made available to families at the Salvation Army South Shields branch.
Check with your school
Some schools organise for school uniform to be donated and they distribute this for free.
Contact your school directly to find out if they can offer any support.
School uniform grants
The Council does not offer financial help to buy school uniforms.
