INFORMATION TIP: Clothing

If you are looking for help with clothing costs, help may be available to you from some charitable funds, if you meet the qualifying rules (eligibility criteria) for their help.

Our Grants Search does not tag charitable fund schemes by words such as "clothing", "kids clothes" or "baby clothes", "work clothes".

To find charitable funds that may be able to help you, you need to search on all aspects of your circumstances (and those of the child/children you are looking for help for) that may be relevant – e.g. occupation (remember to think about the industries you have worked in as well as the jobs you have had), health conditions, nationality.

It is worth doing a search on your details and those of any adults or children that you are looking for clothing for.

Some charities give grants according to individual need. Unless the profile states that the charity does not give grants for clothing, it may be worth contacting any charities that match your circumstances and background to ask if they can help.

Other sources of help

Some foodbanks, often working in partnership with other local organisations, may be able to provide some items of clothing to people who use the foodbank or may know of other support in your area.

The Salvation Army works with people on low incomes and in need. Your local Salvation Army centre may be able to provide clothing and other emergency assistance.

Local churches, temples, mosques, synagogues, Citizens Advice, charities and community groups working with people in need may also know of other sources of help.
