Demand for our service, has increased among those who would not usually seek our help. Babies do not stop being born in a pandemic, but capacity to meet the needs of children does.

The impact has been fourfold.

  • Firstly, reduced volunteer numbers - many current volunteers fall into the ‘at risk’ category - we need skilled volunteers to write our communications campaign
  • Secondly, we've seen an uplift in requests from families not traditionally helped – we need more donated goods and funds
  • We can only accept limited donations of goods from the general public - we need donations from businesses to replenish stocks
  • Limited fundraising capacity - demand on time to respond to crisis and limited apetite among traditional donors due to their own personal hardships.

We are primarily seeking financial donations to ensure the longevity of our operations (literally to pay the rent and keep the doors open).

Sharing our social media campaigns also helps!
