    Donate

    We're always looking for new and used baby goods to pass on to a needed home. See list below for specific items we're looking for. We work with a number of local organisations to run our donation points. If you would prefer to donate financially you can donate directly or through our PayPal Giving Fund page.

    What We Do

    What We Do

    What We Do

    Many families in our community experience financial hardship as they try to adjust to having a new baby at home. The Brierley Hill Babybank was set up in February 2019 to support families with baby essentials.

    In just a few months, thanks to the wonderful donations made by people in the local community, we have been able to support more than 250 families. We are now heading into our second year and are looking for others to help us to continue to support families in our area.

    We take referrals for families within the DY1-10 and B63-5 area from NHS health professionals, family support services and community organisations to ensure that our bespoke packs get to those who need them most.

    At present local people make donations of new or good quality preloved baby clothes, blankets, Moses baskets, changing mats, prams, toys and books. These are washed, dried and made into beautifully gift-wrapped packs, including new toiletries and other essentials for mums-to-be, or families with a child under two years old. Each moses basket donated is provided with a brand-new mattress, to ensure we follow guidelines outlined by The Lullaby Trust, for safer sleeping against sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).

    Our small team of passionate volunteers, based from our premises in Stourbridge, take great care in creating a pack that makes a new family feel really special at a time when they should be enjoying their new arrival rather than worrying about the future.

    Financial Donations

    Without financial donations we would not be able to run and maintain the new unit. If you feel that you would like to support us financially there are a few ways you can do this.

  • Via our Paypal Giving page
  • Write a cheque payable to 'Brierley Hill Baby Bank'
  • Send money directly to our bank account. Sort: 30-96-26 Account: 51014860

    I can’t tell you what a relief this brought me in the preparation for my baby

    They have gone above and beyond and have took a huge weight off me and my partners shoulders

    This charity has made such a difference to me and helped more than I can explain

    Beautiful baby items that will help me when my baby is here

    I was referred to yourselves and can honestly say I don't know what I would have done without the support that was given by yourselves.
