• Coats4Kids asks schools to identify those children aged 4-11 whose family circumstances mean they have no winter coat (schools are usually only too well aware of who those children are!), and let us know how may coats they need. We do not see any details of individual children.
  • We will send the school as many vouchers as needed to fulfil that need, within the constraints of our available funding, and ask that they be given to the families of those children previously identified (not to the children themselves).
  • We DO NOT ask schools to be involved in ordering, storing or distributing coats. As well as avoiding those additional burdens on already overworked school staff, this reduces any chance of the coats being identified by the children as provided through charity.
