All the items we give out are gifts, from one family to another. We couldn’t do what we do without your amazing donations of great quality items for babies and children. The effort you make to sort and sift your donations before bringing them to us makes such a difference. Please read below our guide for what we can accept and how to prepare your donations before you bring them to us.
We’re not able to have our usual volunteer teams sorting donations right now. Please help us by following this guide to donating during the COVID-19 crisis, to help us get items out to families as quickly as possible.
Do you accept all donations for babies and young children?
We can only accept items on the list below. We have limited space to store items.
How do I donate safely?
Please do not donate (or ask someone to collect your items) if you are showing symptoms of coronavirus or if you are self-isolating. Please hold on to the items, as we will still need them in future.
Please follow the principles of social distancing when you are donating and stand at least 2 metres apart.
Please leave your donations in the entrance areas; our volunteers will then take them into the main building.
