Organisation aims and objectives

Baby to Teen has been set up as a branch of Night Before Christmas, by one of the original elves Karen. In 2021 Siobhan Brown MSP merged South Ayrshire Baby Bank into Baby to Teen. The aim of the organisation is to help support families in need during a time of financial stress. Baby to Teen helps families through individual referrals from Health Visitors and Local Authorities. Baby to Teen raises funds through the Baby to Teen shop based at the Tskure Hub. A shop that not only sells products for babies, children and young adults at affordable prices, but also encourages reuse of items that still have plenty of life left in them for someone else to enjoy and make use of. Baby to Teen collects clothes, toiletries, equipment, cots, prams and toys that are new and preloved and sells them, at prices families can afford or passes them onto families in need. Through the funds raised in the shop Baby to Teen can support families in need with new items they need. The service is provided for free, and all donations go directly to the families the charity supports in our local community. As well as being based in the Tskure Hub, Baby to Teen also hosts pop up shops in partnership with local communities, schools and food banks. Aims: 1. To relieve poverty within South Ayrshire by sourcing good quality new and pre-loved products to families in need. 2. To promote greener living by up-cycling products and therefore reducing the amount of waste. 3. To build long lasting relationships with local authorities, health visitors, food banks and schools to support local families in need. 4. To promote Baby to Teen in the local community to encourage donations of items.
