GATESHEAD WEST PRE-LOVED UNIFORM SCHEME

Learn More
 

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.

OUR GOALS

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.
