Tools for School
Project Category: Registered charity
S.M.I.L.E London & Essex are a local growing charity who support struggling families living in crisis in London and Essex. We work in partnership with Social services, welfares officers, schools and outreach officers, we also support 22 family hostels that house thousands of homeless families. We provide hands on support to these families in the way of food shopping vouchers, utility vouchers, free clothing, bedding and household furniture. We also run targeted appeals such as the one below as well as Christmas, Prom and Easter.
We will be opening our FREE school uniform shop at the start of August. This is be a project for struggling families to attend our hub to collect free generic and branded school uniform which can cost up to £250.00 including P.E kit and footwear per child.
We believe no child should miss out on education down to them not having the correct uniform or education supplies, therefore this appeal is vital to our clients.
For families that are in financial crisis, living on benefits or low income these costs are well out of their remit. therefore the children are at risk of isolation and bullying if they are not in the correct size/ style of uniform.
This will be the 4th year of this project which is always extremely in demand.
