School uniform grant

Funded by the Welsh Government to assist families on low incomes.

This is an annual grant from the Welsh Government and is only available to pupils who are eligible* for free school meals entering the following year groups in Swansea schools in September:

  • Reception
  • Year 3
  • Year 7
  • Year 10

Pupils in special schools and pupil referral units will only be eligible for Reception and Year 7.

The funding is also available to all Looked After Children of compulsory school age where Swansea Council is the corporate parent (this excludes Special Guardianship Orders or any other arrangements).

Funding of up to £125 is available for each eligible learner with the exception of those in Year 7. Eligible learners in Year 7 will be entitled to a maximum of £200.

Parents of eligible children will be contacted directly based on information that we receive from our Benefits Team so do not need to apply for uniform grant.

School Uniforms - new and recycled

In partnership with the local schools in Swansea we have set up a new project ABC123 which is all about affordable school uniforms. We accept donated uniforms that are no longer required, launder them and then re-sell them at a fraction of the cost of new uniforms.

We currently have a large quantity of uniforms available at our premises in the town centre: Unit 12, St. David's Shopping Centre, Swansea and we would welcome you to come and see what is available. We are open from 9.30am to 4.30pm Monday to Friday so please feel free to call in.

Some of our stock includes:

  • Jumpers
  • Sweatshirts
  • Cardigans
  • Trousers
  • Dresses (Summer and Winter)
  • Polo Shirts

Some of the uniforms are branded and some are not. Prices range from £2.00 to £5.00 per item and we will also have some bundles available as well.

We look forward to seeing you or you can give us a ring on Tel: 01792 712888 or 07494 966980.
