GATESHEAD WEST PRE-LOVED UNIFORM SCHEME
OUR COMMUNITY MOVEMENT
Founded in 2021, a group of local Parents, Grandparents and volunteers are working together within our local community to reduce uniform poverty and clothes going to landfill unnecessarily.
We accept donations of all good quality goods that can be re-used whether school branded or not.
Using our service is donation based, so pay what you can, if you can.
Gateshead West Pre-Loved Uniform Scheme is dedicated to supporting those in need and reducing waste.
We do not think anyone should have to choose between buying uniform or paying household bills.
We welcome donations from local primary schools around Ryton, Blaydon, and surrounding areas.
We are pleased to accept secondary school uniforms from Thorpe Academy, St Thomas More and Whickham Comp.
We are partnering with local schools but would welcome community support from local businesses and supermarkets.
Get in touch to see how you can support this important movement, every little helps !
TAKE WHAT YOU NEED
Come and visit us and take what uniform you need, on a donation basis. We have regular walk in sessions. No need to book, check Facebook for our next event.
DROP OFF POINTS
We have drop off points at our local Sainsburys in Ryton, the Winlaton Centre and the Health Hub in Ryton. Please bring along your donations any time.
ORGANIZING AN EVENT
We are happy to support local foodbanks, school events and markets with an event and bring along a selection of our uniforms.
Make New Friends! We are so happy to welcome new members of our team. A few hours a month makes all the difference.
