request form 

Most children are now back to face-to-face learning in schools and we are aware that some parents are struggling for items of school uniform. We want to help by running our FREE school uniform service once again, and give away items we have in stock which may be in need.

We have various items of clothing, shoes and other ad-hoc items that are all pre-worn but in excellent condition. If you require uniform for your child/children, please complete our request form highlighted at the top of this page. Once we have received your form, a member of our team will see if we have any suitable items and contact you in due course to let you know.  We would appreciate as much information as possible when filling in the form so we can help you as quickly as possible. Please also make sure we have the correct contact information for you.

Thank you!

Really - amazing I've been twice and my children are ready for school. .

Brilliant opportunity to be able to receive but also give back

Really helpful staff, really easy system

Fantastic friendly service

I received a response really quickly, which I was surprised about. The staff who contacted me and who I met when I attended the centre were extremely happy, sociable and helpful! Well done DP.

Thank you very much for your help

Very friendly & helpful staff . Thank you

Great communication. Special measures in place with social distancing. Very accommodating and great workers

I would jut like to say a huge thank you to all the staff at Dorothy Parkes Centre who made me feel welcome and helped me to get free school uniform for my two daughters.

Very helpful staff and welcoming

Service was great! The lady who helped us was absolutely brilliant. I cannot praise her enough. Very helpful and informative.  With Covid 19 I am pleased to say that the service was very well organised and I felt safe using the service.  Thank you so much.

I couldn't get white shirt for my 4yrs old and shoes and grey for my daughter who is 3 years old. The service was so okay, the lady I met there was so friendly.

It was great service so glad I saw it on Facebook. The uniform will come in great use so grateful. With the on going pandemic the extra uniform is needed so my child can change her clothes regularly

This service has been such a help during the pandemic. Without it I wouldn't have all my children's school uniform

what an amazing idea. Keep up the good work

Great people that were very helpful

Very organised and helpful service.  I was contacted within days of my request to say the uniforms are available for collection. Many thanks for all your help!

Brilliant service thank you, we were able to find trousers for both my boys (which was just what they needed) and drop a bag of clothes off for others to use too. Such friendly staff and a great community service, thank you!

You guys are doing a great job and I will definitely be donating my girls uniforms to you, its good to know someone else can benefit from them. Thank you

I think this is an awesome service that helps with the cost of school uniform. I work and don't claim benefits so we actually struggle but this has been a massive help. Thank you

Fantastic service. Brilliant for families on low income and those wanting to reduce the harm to our environment that comes from buying new clothes. Thanks so much to all the staff who keep this running. It really is valuable and appreciated.
