Hope Centre established the Baby Basics Project in April 2015, since then we have distributed over 170 Moses Basket Starter Packs to expectant mums and families who need a little extra help when preparing for the birth of their baby.
The original Baby Basics Project was born in Sheffield, please click here to find out more.
We first saw the need for the project when we started to engage with mums to be who were coming to use our Foodbank services. We believe that every child should have an equal start in life and believe that giving out these baskets can make that possible.
The project relies greatly on the local community who donate all of the needed items to the project. We fill Moses Baskets with baby clothing (aged 0-6 months), along with toiletries for mum and baby, toys, blankets, sheets and towels. All of the donated clothing is washed and ironed before they are given away, as we want the mum-to-be to feel special and valued when they receive this gift.
