Any and all money raised will be a massive support to our small but mighty charity and will help us continue providing our service.

Baby Bank Scotland was established in 2015 after recognising both a need within the community for support and also an outlet other than landfill for for preloved baby items. Our service continues to grow year on year with the ever increasing rates in child poverty and we are proud to be at the heart of so many local communities offering support to alleviate the strain poverty/financial hardship inflicts on families. With an abundance of preloved baby items on offer, we can provide these families with items they would not be able to afford, allowing them to create better starts in life for their babies and young children.

We are just a small team, made up entirely of volunteers, who work tirelessly to provide a community support service that can be accessed by anyone in need. We receive no government funding and rely solely on community grants and donations like this to help us cover our costs which include paying for our premises which are essential to our service, small utility costs and our expenses involved in the provision of items such as new mattresses, toiletries, nappies and baby formula.

We believe every child deserves the best start possible in life and we are here to support families when they need it most.
