Baby Basics

Baby Basics has been operating from the Bridge Church to those in Bolton & Bury since 2016. During that time we have helped over 700 families who are in need due to: poverty, domestic abuse, victims of trafficking, teenage pregnancy, homelessness or addictions. 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)
Our volunteers launder, iron and pack each starter pack with great care to communicate a message of value and self-worth to the families that receive them.
Mums who receive our baskets report that they are now equipped to meet the needs of their newborn in addition to feeling empowered and cared for. This practical help also allows families to divert finance to other essential outgoings eg: rent payments and food rather than on baby items.
For some families, provision of the starter pack has made the difference between a baby being able to stay with its mother or being taken into care.
We work closely with crafting groups, voluntary agencies and those donating their babies preloved clothes and items. We believe every baby deserves a good start and every family the opportunity to feel the joy a new baby can bring.
