Cumbernauld & Kilsyth Care

School Uniform & Baby Bank

For families in and around the Cumbernauld and Kilsyth Area

Welcome to
Cumbernauld & Kilsyth Care

We are a registered charity, working since March 2016, with the aim of helping children and families in our communities. We currently provide two services in our local area - a School Uniform Bank and a Baby Bank - but we also support the fantastic work of other local charities and organisations who care for the communities of Cumbernauld, Kilsyth and surrounding villages.

Our School Uniform Bank and Baby Bank aim to support children and families in need, through community recycling and donations.

The School Uniform Bank provides school uniform free of charge to those families most in need in the area, through a system of referrals. Packs provided to children and young people consist of new and pre-loved items. But we also want to provide wider community benefit, by giving families access to good quality pre-loved uniform, that may have otherwise have gone to landfill. So we are developing a system of uniform exchange.

The Baby Bank delivers support to parents and carers of young children in the area who need a little help. This help is primarily in the form of a 'starter pack' for babies, which is presented as a gift from the local community. However, we also provide other items for young children, based on referrals.

We accept referrals via social work, schools, health visitors and other relevant groups and organisations. For more information on referals, please click here.

For information on donating your preloved items, please see the Donation Guides in the Baby Bank and Uniform Bank sections of the site.

Helping your local community

"We were delighted to donate the clothes and equipment our children no longer need, and know that it helps local families too!"

Winter Woolies Campaign 2017

Winter Woolies Campaign 2017

28 Sep 2017

As the clocks turn back, winter will soon be upon us. It's time to start wrapping up warm, and dig out the hats, scarves and gloves. Sadly, there are children in our communities who don't have these items to 'dig out' from the back of the wardrobe and their families cannot afford to buy them now. So, this winter we are once again running our 'WINTER WOOLIES' campaign, with the aim of getting these warm winter essentials to every child who needs them.
