Going to school without a uniform
Thousands of children in Luton go to school with no school uniform, no winter coat and shoes that are falling apart. Since the school uniform grant ended in September 2014, more than 8,550 children are thought to be struggling to school without adequate uniform and shoes.
Discover Islam partnered with the Level Trust, to strengthen our community by working together to help those in need and deliver a full-time Uniform Exchange in partnership with local schools. The project was opened at a launch event in May 2015.
The centre signposts to the Level Trust so they can swap uniforms their children have grown out of for uniforms that fit. Hundreds of uniforms were exchanged through this partnership.
