Need help?

Make a referral

We accept referrals from professional and voluntary organisations working with families in an official capacity.

We do not accept self-referrals, or referrals for family and friends.

If you are working with a family who we are unable to support right now, please refer to our map of alternative baby banks or the resources section on our family support page here.

How do the families receive what they need?

We are predominantly delivering items to families’ homes. We will contact the family to confirm their delivery address and slot. The family will also receive a call a couple of weeks after they have received their items to welcome them into the Little Village community and to offer further support and signposting if needed.

How can I get other help for families?

We have compiled some resources to help you and the families you work with get support from other sources. These may be useful if you are working with families whom we are unable to support at this time.
