Baby Basics has been operating from the Bridge Church to those in Bolton & Bury since 2016.

Our aim is to provide essential baby items to vulnerable women who would struggle to meet the financial and practical needs of their new-born baby. We receive referrals from Midwives, Health visitors and over 20 other referring agencies for Moses basket starter packs and labour bags. These starter packs provide a safer place for a baby to sleep and are fitted with a brand-new mattress in addition to other essential baby items (clothes, blankets, nappies and toiletries)

|Eden Care Project||
We are a non-for-profit organisation. We aim to better the elderly care services and access to these services for BME groups. We believe and know that there exists an inequality in service provision for these groups; whether that be due to this group not understanding what is available, to not understanding who/where to seek help etc. Also we aim to (in the future) deliver care services that are designed and delivered with the cultural and social/health needs of the target population in mind; we aim to deliver responsive, adaptive care services ranging from home care/home help to day care and respite services, advocacy services, residential/nursing care provision etc.
