Baby Basics Portsmouth

Thursday, October 15, 2020

Baby Basics Portsmouth has been operating across the city since 2016 - and in this time has seen a huge growth as demand increases.  

We are delighted to have been successful in our bid for lottery funding and this alongside a number of smaller grants (Abri Housing, Neighbourly Fund) has enabled us to expand storage facilities and increase staffing capacity.

The recent support from HRH Duchess of Cambridge @thebritishmonarchy has mobilised large company support with donations from a wide variety of suppliers. The community has been amazing in supporting us with pre-loved donations and fundraising.

During lock down we were able to upscale quickly to support the agencies working with families across the city. Diane Urquhart, Baby Basics lead for Portsmouth has recently been appointed Baby Basics Regional Hub leader for the South has a passion for working cohesively across agencies encouraging a city wide approach to tackle the challenges surrounding poverty in the city.

Whilst challenges with the need to quarantine items and to ensure volunteers are working safely have had an impact it has not affected the service provided  - We operate out of Family church and the service is referral basis only.
