Smarter Uniforms is a community led second-hand uniform shop based in Brighton & Hove. We aim to fundraise for schools, save parents money and protect our planet's precious resources for our children's future.

We need volunteers to drive uniforms to and from schools and our sorting centre/ uniform shop.

We are so grateful to receive so many donations from parents and schools. On collection days we receive hundreds of uniform donations that need processing. Sorting through the uniforms and organising them is vital to keep our shop running efficiently. We are in need of people to help with this sorting process which includes folding, ordering, organising and shelving the uniform so it is ready to be resold in our shop. Helping out in our shop also includes roles such as: stock replenishment, tidying the store, creating and processing online orders.
