Organisation aims and objectives

Kidzeco is a community interest company that recycles good quality children's goods i.e. prams, buggies, clothes, books, furniture, toys and more. We also run classes on various forms of crafts, including jewellery making, knitting and patchwork. We are based in Bathgate and have only been opened since February 2010. The profits made through sales are returned to the community to help develop other charities and projects that benefit the local community. We have helped volunteers and customers to raise funds for different events in aide of different causes, and we are always looking for ideas. The newest part of our service is the community room. The community room is used for different things such as children's parties and weekly children's services e.g. babies music classes.
