Need
help?

We pass on loved goods from one family to another, so that many more babies and young children have the essential things they need. Families either visit a Little Village hub, or items are packed with care and delivered to their home. We also connect families into a wider network of support, helping them to build and extend their own ‘village. 

If you are new to Little Village, please read our full referrals policy here. 

You can also read our frequently asked questions here 

Please note that due to high levels of demand we have had to introduce a daily cap on the number of referrals we can accept. The form will be opened at 9.30am each working day and once this quota has been met the form will close and reopen again for referrals at 9:30am the next working day. 

If the form is currently closed, please check back here the following working day at 9.30am 

What do you provide?

We can provide clothing and shoes (up to age 5), essential baby equipment — including a safe place to sleep for a baby/child, bedding, a sling, a buggy, feeding and bathing equipment, toys and books, nappies & wipes. All these items are delivered safely and directly to the family’s home or families can choose their items from one of the Little Village hubs, depending on their location.  Our items are second hand except for mattresses, bottle teats, breast pumps, nappies and toiletries which are all provided brand new (if they are available)

We accept referrals for families with children up to the age of 5 years or pregnantmums 30+ weeks into their pregnancy who live in one of the boroughs listed below.

How do the families receive what they need?

We regularly deliver items to families’ homes. We will contact the family to confirm their delivery address and slot. The family will 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.

We also have a ‘shop’ at our hubs in Tooting, Camden and Brent where local families can be invited in to choose their items in person.

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.
