Who are The School Bank West Lothian?
We are a volunteer-led group aiming to improve the lives of children in families in West Lothian experiencing financial hardship by providing them with a brand new school uniform and other clothing and equipment required for the school day.
The uniforms are distributed by referral from organisations working with families. We do not liaise directly with families. We accept referrals from professionals in the community such as Head Teachers, Social Workers, Housing Officers, Womens Aid, Health Visitors and other agencies including West Lothian Council, Citizens Advice Bureau, Homestart and the Advice Shop in Bathgate.
There are several ways to support our work – please see our How You Can Help page, or use the links below, for more details, and you can go to the Drop-off Points page for an up to date list of locations around West Lothian for making clothing donations.
Thank you for your support!
Thank you so much for all the school items. I actually cried over and over when I thought of the kindness shown to my son, especially as those helping him will probably never meet him. It shows true kindness and understanding. The world is a better place with people like that in it. Please pass my thanks to them all. They will never know how much this means.
