Dear Parent/Carer,

School Uniform Scheme Drop Off and Collection Points:


For your convenience, donations of good quality, clean school uniforms can be dropped off to each of our Pop-Up Shops (locations below) and uniform items can also be collected between Monday 8 July until Friday 30 August 2024:

  • Ballymena – Retail Unit 58-59 Tower Centre, Wellington Street Ballymena, Co. Antrim, BT43 6AH: Mon – Fri 10am – 2pm

There is no qualifying criteria or referral process. People can go along and drop off uniforms, however if they have nothing to donate, they can still pick up anything that they need (subject to availability) throughout July and August.
