The cost of buying school uniform increases yearly and can really add up. This is one of the many reasons parents all over the country have set up groups in their local area to exchange their children’s old uniforms. In Redbridge Alifya Esa has set up the Facebook group OUS (Onward Uniform Share). This group was set up to help struggling families who may not be able to afford buying a new school uniform. Locals are encourage to donate old school uniform items when their child has grown out of their uniform or left school rather than putting them in the bin.
