all about


The Button Box runs a referral process throughout the year where families are able to access clothing for their growing families between age 0-16yrs.

Who can request clothing?

Any families living within Midlothian that feel they would benefit from clothing from The Button Box are able to request a referral.

When will the family receive their referral?

The Button Box relies on donations to meet their referral requests therefore we will do our best to respond to all our referrals as soon as possible.  Please note that on some occasions we may not be able to meet all referrals if we do not have the clothing to meet the request.  We will always inform you if we are able or unable to meet the referral.

How to make a referral?

Download and complete this form. The form should be completed by a professional who is working with or knows the family. For example this can be a Health Visitor, GP, Community Nurse, Nursery Staff, School Teacher or Head Teacher.
