School Clothing Report

School Clothing Report

Findings from the 2017 School Clothing Grants Survey 

“I did without for months in order to afford school uniforms”   

Across Scotland, the school clothing grant varies by local authority (from £40 to £110) and in many areas amounts set are not enough to adequately clothe children for school.

CPAG Scotland, One Parent Families Scotland and The Poverty Truth Commission undertook a survey of parents on the school clothing grant.

This report provides a useful snapshot of the challenges faced by many parents across Scotland as well as recommendations.
