Little Village turns 3 amid shocking levels of poverty

To mark our third birthday, we are today releasing new figures showing a huge increase in the number of families we see. We expect the trend to continue in 2019.

The number of families seen by Little Village rose from 773 in 2017 to 1524 in 2018 – a rise of 97 per cent.

Since its launch in 2016, we have supported 2098 families. This includes passing on:

  • 859 safe places to sleep (cots, moses baskets) – showing that almost half of the families did not previously have a safe place for their babies to sleep
  • 697 buggies
  • 170,000 items including clothing, shoes, warm coats, toys and books
  • 21,000 pieces of equipment including bottles, high chairs and baby carriers
