Baby Basics provides much needed essentials and equipment to mothers and families who
are unable to provide these items for themselves; including but not limited to teenage mums,
people seeking asylum and women fleeing domestic abuse and trafficking.
Baby Basics is a volunteer-led project aiming to support new mothers and families who
are struggling to meet the financial and practical burden of looking after a new baby.
Baby Basics started at The Kings Centre in Sheffield in the spring of 2009,
this centre continues to support families across Sheffield working with a wide range of
frontline health and social care professionals.
Working with midwives, health visitors and other professional groups to provide support
directly where it is most needed.
Baby Basics volunteers lovingly collect, sort and package a ‘Moses Basket’ of clothing,
toiletries and essential baby equipment as an attractive gift to new mothers.
We, Carlisle Christian Fellowship,share the vison and aim of the founders of Baby Basics UK,
and are extremely pleased and excited to now be their Partner for Carlisle.
Below are some examples of the items which are given to the mothers.
