Buy us a coffee!!
This year, to celebrate Baby Bank Network’s 4th birthday, we are looking for 100 people to support our work every month for the price of a coffee!
If 100 amazing people, wanting to make a difference in their local community, gave Baby Bank Network £2.95 a month, over the course of a year, together they would have raised an incredible £3540.
With this money, Baby Bank Network could:
Pay for 544 bundles to be delivered
When we can, we deliver bundles to referral partners, enabling more nurses, midwives and other professionals to use our service for the families they work with. Last year, we delivered around 598 bundles.
Buy 154 new mattresses
Last year, we spent around £3700 on mattresses which we have to buy new for safety reasons.
Support 101 families with the essential items they need for their new babies and young children
In 2018 we supported 1040 families.
Baby Bank Network is hugely grateful to everyone who supports our work in so many different ways. With more and more families needing our service, thank you for thinking about ‘buying us a coffee’ every month to support our work.
Demand for our services is increasing and we are urgently looking for more warehouse volunteers to sort donations and prepare items for families.
If you are able to volunteer regularly on weekday mornings, we’d love to hear from you.
Please let us have your details by filling out this form and we will be in touch.

Baby Bank Network was set up in Bristol in June 2015 to help alleviate child poverty and support families at a what may be a time of financial and emotional stress, whilst reducing waste and promoting reuse of items.
We collect baby clothes, toiletries, equipment, cots, prams and toys that are pre-loved, and pass them on to families in need. We receive referrals from health visitors, children’s centres and other local professionals who work with vulnerable families. Our service is provided for free. All donations go directly to the families that we support.
In February 2017, we launched our first partner branch, Bairnecessities, helping families in Aberdeenshire. Since then we have launched partner branches in Exeter and Isle of Wight.
