The School Bank West Lothian is a charity that supports families with the cost of the school day. We supply school uniforms and other essential school items to help families who are experiencing financial and domestic difficulties. Our charitable purposes are to prevent or relieve child poverty in families experiencing financial hardship in West Lothian and support the advancement of education of children and young people facing socio-economic and cultural deprivation.
The need for our service is growing. In the year to 2019 – 2020 we received 840 referrals, which is continuing to increase. We anticipate further demand for our service during the continued impact of COVID-19 on people’s employment and finances. We therefore appeal for more donations to meet this demand – please see our website for more information on how to donate.
We operate on a referral basis and will accept a referral from any professional organisation, such as schools, social work, health visitors or advice based organisation.
