The SPACE launched our Baby Bank on Zoom in December
for details see below:
Since the start of the pandemic, we have delivered over 20,000 meals to vulnerable residents, those who shielded or self isolated. We talked to hundreds of families and saw first hand the impact of COVID. As a recent study shows, many families will go without essentials such as nappies, toiletries and food.
Nearly 9 in 10 of the baby banks surveyed say children living in poverty will go without essentials such as nappies as a direct result of the pandemic.
Nearly 8 in 10 say they need more nappies, mattresses and other products that can’t be given out second hand.
We as a community did what we always do: create solutions and get things done. So we launched our Baby Bank. It is a collaborative effort so that together we can support families in these difficult times. Families are provided with essentials as well as direct access to support and specialist services linking in to children centres and other organisations.
It is our community bank so let's make this work together. Please let us know if you can help, or have ideas by contacting us firstname.lastname@example.org
If you can help us by donating baby toiletries please do get in touch.
Thank you to all of you in the community who have made this possible
