Bairnecessities was founded by local mum and nursery nurse, Helen Feeney. In a similar concept to a food bank, our aim is to tackle child poverty and promote re-use by donating baby essentials to families who are struggling.
We take in pre-loved items from local families and distribute them to those in need via a network of referral partners. Referral partners include Health Visitors, Midwives, Social Workers and partner charities including homeless charities, domestic violence shelters and refugee organisations.
Bairnecessities is 100% volunteer-run and relies on the generosity of families and local businesses donating items, money and time to ensure local families can rely on this valuable service.
