Baby Basics was founded in 2009 at a church in Sheffield with the aim of providing some of the basics needed for life with a new-born to families in need. We have been running this scheme across Hampton, Hanworth and Sunbury and the surrounding areas since 2014.  In that time, we have delivered 600 Starter Packs!!

Baby Basics works with midwives, health visitors and other professional bodies to provide much needed items and help for vulnerable groups such as teenage mums, asylum seekers, and women fleeing domestic violence and trafficking. We believe that Baby Basics shows God's love in action, it is a testament to the love and care God has for all his children. We provide Starter Packs for those in need. Our Moses baskets provide a bed for the baby to sleep in and are packed full of toiletries - nappies, wipes, maternity pads, etc., as well as blankets, towels and baby clothes.

For some, these gifts are the only items they have for their child.
