Recycle School Uniform is a Community Interest Company and a social enterprise that is dedicated to school uniform reuse. It collects donated school uniforms, launders, and re-sells them at an affordable price to families who are struggling financially. The funds generated from the re-sales and the money fund-raised will go towards children's activities to help them to grow and thrive.

What we'll deliver:

  • Rent a storage place
  • Organize activities
  • Update and maintain our website

Why it's a great idea:

Recycle School Uniforms C.I.C. (RSU) will improve the personal, social, and emotional care of every child in the area. Parents will be able to provide the appropriate uniforms which will give equal opportunity to every child and which will avoid segregation in the area. Where every child will have an opportunity to be together and socialize which will lessen crime. It will also benefit the children with different opportunities in life and activities that will enrich their own self-esteem in making the right choices for themselves. Which in the long term will benefit our communities and make them a better and safer place to live in.

Steps to get it done:

  • n/a

We aim to support parents who are on lower incomes and struggle to provide school uniforms for their children. This will build up their confidence and avoid any type of bullying for their own appearance. Also with the money that we make the uniforms, we are giving it back to the community by providing unaffordable school activities/outings/ and other opportunities that the children might benefit from. RSU will make a difference in children’s and their families' lives. It will provide equality, self-esteem, and different life-enriching opportunities.
