We provide baby clothes and equipment (up to age 2) to families in financial difficulty.

If you would like to access this service we will need a referral from your health visitor, midwife or worker at another statutory agency or charity. Please ask them to email our office (full details below) and we can get you added to our books. Once you have been referred to our service you can re-access for 2 years.

Our service is open to families in all their varied forms, including those who do not live under the same roof or when a child is living with extended family. If you require more than 1 of any item please let us know, we are not always able to oblige but we will do our best.

Most of the families we work with are put in touch with us during pregnancy, at which point we will supply one of our ‘newborn packs’. This can include

  • all the clothing you will require
  • moses basket with stand and bedding
  • sling
  • bouncy chair
  • bottles
  • steriliser (electric or microwave, as needed)
  • baby bath
  • breast pump
  • baby monitor
  • toiletries and nappies
  • Prams and buggies

If there is anything else you require we will do our best to source it.

After the birth of your child, we can help with the following

  • Clothing up to age 2
  • cot-beds and cots
  • high chair
  • nappies
  • toiletries
  • safety gates
  • 6m+ suitable strollers

Unfortunately we cannot provide the following items but we can provide guidance on other avenues for getting these items
