School uniform should be the least of a parent’s worries. That’s why UNISON’s very own charity, There for You, gives school uniform grants to members who need a helping hand in getting their kids kitted out for the new term.

The grant programme is limited to 2,000 applications and will close once the maximum number of applications has been received.  This is due to the limited amount in the School Uniform Grant Fund.

We’re launching the school uniform grant during half term: on 1 June 2023. And releasing 1000 applications at 08.30am, and another 1000 applications at 5.00pm. So that members can apply when it works for them.

This is a one-off grant of £50 per school aged child, up to a maximum of £150. Click here to view the eligibility criteria.

How to apply

All applications should be submitted online.  Once launched, the application will go live here.

Those members who have access needs which mean that they can’t apply online, should contact UNISONdirect on 0800 0857 857, whilst the grants are open; where our agents will be able to assist.
