BUILDING A STRONGER COMMUNITY TOGETHER
At Diamonds in the Community we aim to provide services that are missing from Airdrie, Coatbridge and surrounding areas.
These services are hoped to be both beneficial to the individuals participating as well as the overall community by using
resources and organisations that are already in place.

BABY & FAMILY CLOTHING AID
Diamonds in the Community operates a clothing bank for babies, young children and adults. As well as supplying clothing we can also provide some essential baby equipment, toiletries and toys to help with development.
In ever increasingly difficult financial times families and individuals can quite easily find themselves in times of difficulty, we hope by providing this service that we may be able to leasen the burden of providing some much needed clothing for all seasons of the year and helping with the many costs of raising a young baby.
HOW WE WORK
Diamonds in the Community relies heavily on the goodwill of individuals, companies and organisations in our community. From the volunteers who give up their free time, to the florist or optician that donates some much needed funds to the organisations who assist with transport and storage we couldn't do it without all these wonderfully kind gestures. In turn we like to give back to the same community by utilising venues for functions, using local business's for services and recommending those who give to their community.
