What started as a idea of a charity shop to improve access to children' clothes and equipment has since developed into much more. B@titude has a tea and coffee area that has become an integral part of the community; allowing mums, dads and grandparents, a chance to relax while children can play in the play area.
There are many different projects that happen both inside and outside of the shop. They offer counselling to individuals who otherwise couldn’t afford it. In the summers holidays they organise trips to places such as London Zoo, Hobbledown Farm & the beach.
