Baby Steps is a social enterprise that offers affordable goods for newborns, whilst also providing inclusive employment for adults with disabilities. The shop in Kirk Wynd, Falkirk stocks a variety of products for infants, from buggies, baths and cots to changing units, clothes and toys. In addition to the services they provide to low income families the enterprise also fulfills an ecological role.
“Baby Steps also provides a really useful alternative for families keen to recycle their much loved baby equipment and expect to divert around 60 tonnes from landfill.”
– Claire Davis, Baby Steps.
HND Film and Television students Albert Lucas and Stephanie Moir were joined by Barra Convery and Fionn Beardon, (who were visiting the department on an exchange from Galway Technical Institute), to film footage at the shop in Kirk Wynd and obtain some vox pops with members of the public in Falkirk about Baby Steps as a social enterprise.
“The students were aware of the sensitivities of filming at the Baby Steps shop as they had been briefed beforehand. During the filming, they conducted the interviews with the staff superbly and they managed to demonstrate a high degree of initiative during the vox pops interviews on Falkirk High Street.”
- Alan Moffat, Film & Television Lecturer
