State Schools' Relief provides quality footwear and non-branded clothing from our stock and delivered to the school free of charge. Other branded school uniform items are subsidised. You will be asked to make a contribution to each branded item of clothing.
State Schools’ Relief can only respond to requests from principals, assistant principals and welfare coordinators. If you are struggling to provide your child's uniform, make an appointment with the school principal or assistant principal/welfare coordinator to discuss your situation.
We will support any student attending a Victorian Government school on the advice of the school. Situations include, but are not limited to:
Stock from State Schools' Relief (SSR) will be sent by courier directly to the school. Authorised purchases of branded items will need to be collected from the school uniform retailer. Details regarding the location of the school uniform retailer can be obtained from the school.
Parents will have to pay the difference between the our subsidy and the cost of the item at collection. Our service is anonymous and discreet. There is nothing on the packaging to indicate that the item has come from us.
