How to support your local baby bank

Find your local baby bank and check which items they are currently accepting.

Many baby banks have guides for the donations they can accept and quality and safety standards for those.

Items baby banks often need are:

  • Clothes
  • Toys and books
  • Cots and moses baskets
  • Buggies and pushchairs
  • Nappies, wipes, toiletries
  • Weaning equipment (eg high chairs)
  • Bottles and new teats

Check your items: are they clean, un-damaged and compliant with the baby bank’s safety standards? Would you pass them on to a friend?

Check your local baby bank’s website to find out how to donate.

Baby banks rely on financial donations to enable them to run and to buy items which have to be passed on to families brand new and un-used.

Baby banks are often looking for more volunteers. Volunteering can be hugely rewarding, allowing you to play an active part in helping your local community. You can volunteer regularly or as a once off, as an individual or as part of a company volunteering day.
