Children playing in the rain

Apply for wet weather clothing for your class!

With 4.2 million children in the UK living in poverty - that’s 9 children in a class of 30 - many children don't have the right clothing to keep them warm and dry.


That's why, at the end of last year, we ran a Crowdfunder campaign to help kit out the UK's primary schoolchildren in wet weather clothing.


Thanks to everyone who generously donated to the campaign, we were able to raise over £6,000.


These donations will enable us and Muddy Puddles to provide high-quality wet weather clothing libraries for full classes of 30 pupils in 7 primary schools across the UK. These clothing libraries will ensure that children can get outside whatever the weather, year after year.


We are now welcoming applications from primary schools across the UK to be one of the 7 lucky schools to receive a complete clothing library.


To ensure that this wet weather clothing is getting to the schools that need it most, we are asking all Primary Schools who apply to fulfil the following criteria:


  • Your school must be a Primary School or include primary provision.
  • You must have support from your school leadership team to apply for the programme.
  • If in England or Wales, your school must have over 40% of pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium.
  • If in Northern Ireland, your school must have over 40% of pupils eligible for Free School Meals.
  • If in Scotland, your school must be situated in Deciles 1-3 of 2020's Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation.


Applications will close on Tuesday 25 May 2021, and the lucky schools will be contacted very soon afterwards.
