A National Warehouse for Baby Basics UK. So we STORE more public & corporate donations so we can GIVE more to our 50 Baby Basics centres

by Baby Basics UK in Sheffield, England, United Kingdom

Baby Basics UK was established in 2009 from our inaugral centre in Sheffield and we are now the largest network of Baby Banks in the UK. 

Throughout the pandemic our 51 centres across the UK have seen a huge increase in referrals to our service, with over 32,000 children and their families supported (March 2020 - June 2021)

In August 2020 we began to recieve wonderful donations from corporate partners, through an intiative with HRH The Duchess of Cambridge. Although this intiative has come to an end we continue to recieve amazing donations from over 20 corporate donors. These wonderful brand new items are distributed alongside our high quality second hand public donations to bless and value the vulnerable families we support.  

With these amazing corporate donations we have had to quickly develop a distribution system to get these items out to our network of centres across the UK. 

We have been fundraising for our New National Warehouse through out 50 for 50 campaign to enable us to STORE more to GIVE more to vulnerable families. 

To date we have raised over £30,000  which has enabled us to rent a warehouse space. We have taken the leap to employ a part time Corporate Partnerships & Logisitics Co-Ordinator and monies raised from this Avivia Crowd Funding will support this role and other practical items for the warehouse to ensure that it runs effectively and efficiently.

Join us in our mission to serve the most vulnerable families in our society and help us STORE more and GIVE more.  

Got an idea like this?

Over £200 million has been raised from our crowd to support the projects they love! Plus tens of millions more unlocked by our partners.
