Baby Basics started at The Kings Centre in Sheffield in the spring of 2009, this centre continues to support families across Sheffield working with a wide range of frontline health and social care professionals. There is now a growing network of over 50 Baby Basics centres across the UK each staffed by a committed team of volunteers.

Working with midwives, health visitors and other professional groups to provide support directly where it is most needed, Baby Basics volunteers lovingly collect, sort and package a ‘Moses Basket’ of clothing, toiletries and essential baby equipment as an attractive gift to new mothers. The aim is to help new mothers practically and generously. Larger items such as buggies, cots and highchairs and much more are also given out as the child needs them.
