The Parenting Network - Baby Bundle

Aiming to Launch in September, The Portsmouth Baby Bank aims to help alleviate child poverty and support families during times 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.
