Many families with young children in London will be struggling during the coronavirus outbreak. We’re here to help.
Who we support
We are here to help families who are struggling financially. If you are struggling with purchasing essential items for your baby or pre-school child, we can help.
If you can afford these essentials but are self-isolating, please contact your local council.
We can help you if you live in any of the following boroughs of London: Camden, Southwark, Wandsworth, Brent, Barnet, City of Westminster, City of London, Croydon, Haringey, Hackney, Hammersmith and Fulham, Greenwich, Islington, Kensington and Chelsea, Kingston upon Thames, Lambeth, Lewisham, Merton, Richmond upon Thames, Sutton, Tower Hamlets.
If you don’t live in one of these areas, see here for other charities we have identified who may be able to help.
What we can provide
We can provide ‘essentials packs’ to families – which include a months’ supply of nappies, wipes, toiletries, and sanitary products. You can see here for what these packs include.
We are also able to support you if you are expecting a baby and need the essentials to keep you baby clean, warm and safe.
If you need help with other issues, like food, or advice on housing and finances, we’ve put together a list of helpful links here.
Who can refer me?
To get our help you’ll need to be referred by a professional, such as a midwife, health visitor or food bank. There’s information for professionals about how to make that referral here.
We are also able to accept referrals from local mutual support groups. Please ask them to contact us by emailing us here.
