Practical & Stylish Uniforms for Housing Associations


From corporate suiting to durable workwear your housing association uniform should lookprofessional whatever situation.

When thinking about uniforms for your Housing Association you quickly realise just how varied the job types are in your organisation. There are several different

positions that require a uniform with a specific purpose or style for the job.

This doesn’t mean your staff should look a miss match of styles though.

Coordinating your uniform.

A branded uniform is one of the best ways of making your association recognisable to your tenants and public. A cohesive style across your entire staff helps breed trust
and gives your employees a sense of being part of a team.

When you think of the rolls your workers play it can be a bit confusing when trying to coordinate an entire
uniform. With everything from Managers, Finance and Administrators to Collection Officers, Housing Assistants and Grounds Maintenance to think about, it’s no wonder
anyone would find the process a bit daunting.

But it’s easier than you think.

Picking the right style.

So, how do you go about creating a style? You may already have a corporate theme so picking the colour maybe simple. If not, Kylemark can help develop a uniform
range giving advice with ideas and examples.

We’ll give you pointers on existing uniforms or help evolvea whole new look. From office wear to all weather gear,
we have the experience to find the perfect combination.

The right garment for the right job.

With different departments you will perhaps have differentuniform combinations for certain rolls. But obviously, certain garments will fit in across your entire organisation.

Polo shirts for example suit so many different environments, are easily branded and very durable making them a versatile top. Anyone from your Administrators to Maintenance can wear a smart polo and they won’t look out of place. Coming in an array or colours, styles and fabrics this makes this option a great all rounder.

Knitwear is always a good choice for office staff. Coming in a range of colours your cardigans, jumpers and slipovers are easily branded. You can even specify colours for contrast trim on sleeves and collars to match in with your corporate theme.

With a huge selection of shirts and blouses to choose from you wont be short of choice. And for those that require suiting we supply several ranges of quality jackets, trousers and skirts as well as corporate dresses.

Many of your staff will have outside rolls so a different aproach is needed to their uniforms. Waterproofs, soft shell jackets and sweatshirts are obvious choices and
can all be colour coordinated and branded. Combine this with work trousers this covers everyone from Maintenance to Collection Officers.
