What We Do
Our dream is that no child in the capital grows up without essential items of clothing, toys and equipment. We keep babies warm, clothed and entertained, with a safe place to sleep and a means of getting out of the house.
“35 per cent of the families we support do not have a safe place for their babies to sleep.”
Each of our sites run regular family sessions during term time. Here, families who have been referred to us are welcomed in, and invited to choose the items they need while their children play.
“It’s an amazing place to be with so much love, the staff are friendly, lovely and amazing people.”Dad we've supported
We also run outreach sessions around the boroughs in which we work, ensuring that Little Village reaches those families who would otherwise struggle to visit us.

Our referral partners tell us that we have a direct impact on maternal mental health as well as easing household budgets. The families we meet tell us we help them feel less lonely through our friendly family and outreach sessions, and our volunteers tell us we’ve helped them with post-natal depression and the loss of confidence that so often comes with parenthood.
“Little Village really has sincerely helped us out and I am happy to return any unused items when my baby has out grown them. I’m really loving this service, it’s an excellent way of meeting new mums and also exchanging ideas with others.”Hostel manager after a visit from Little Village
