Baby basics & Toddler Togs in North West Glasgow
Hundreds of families in North West Glasgow have benefited from £12,500 of funding to deliver a Baby Basics & Toddler Togs programme.
This project recirculates donated items of baby and children’s clothes, toys and equipment to families in need.
When applying 3D Drumchapel noted that they had almost 200 referrals for its clothing and equipment bank, redistributing items from winter jumpers to cots, Babygro’s to children’s toys, to families in North West Glasgow.
The service covers Drumchapel, Yoker and Knightswood, areas with significantly reduced outcomes for education, health, wellbeing and employment. The bank is run by volunteers who have all accessed the family engagement services at 3D Drumchapel.
As well as providing a valuable service to families in the community by preventing poverty, the funding has helped support parents involved in this initiative to develop their own skills and transform the service into an ongoing and sustainable social enterprise.
