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 help with sales in our uniform shop, as well as helping at our events and with general admin and communications work. 

We are so grateful to receive so many donations from parents and schools. We need more volunteers to help generally in the shop as well as with admin work such as stock take and analysing sales, as well as communicating with schools and parents so that both our events and our shop can run smoothly and efficiently.
