GROWBABY IS OUR PROJECT FOR FAMILIES WHO REQUIRE PRACTICAL HELP WITH CHILDREN’S CLOTHING AS WELL AS ADDITIONAL SUPPORT NEEDS.
Looking after little ones can be a challenge, especially when faced with an unexpected crisis or on limited income. Re:store creates a safety net of support so that families are not alone.
ONE Talk to a Referral agency about your situation. The Referral agency will need information on ages of children and contact details, this is to ensure that the best items are provided for your family.
TWO If it’s the right thing for your family, you’ll be informed how to access Growbaby
THREE Collect your personalised bundle of clothes, toys, equipment or your Referrer may collect on your behalf (in the near future, when we can offer a covid-safe experience you’ll even be able to choose your own items from our Growbaby Boutique and stop for a cuppa).
FOUR Be welcomed into Re:store Northampton, to join in some of the other fantastic activities on offer for families with babies and pre-school children
You may be offered a time to come in to collect your bundle/choose your items. Growbaby sessions offer time to talk with one of the team, to share your experiences and get extra help or be directed, to other local services that might be able to help more. This is all totally voluntary and just a way for us to support you. You’ll be offered free refreshments, and there will be toys for your children to play with while you chat.
As we get back to more community focused activities on site (once the risks from covid are reduced), we will have several families welcomed into more of a drop-in sessions, so you may meet other parent/carers who you can connect with. Your personal information is never shared with any other agencies, so even if you have No Recourse to Public Funds, you will be safe to share your details.
We are unable to receive donations of used children’s clothing at this time but if you would like to donate financially to enable us to restock our supplies with brand new clothing then we are able to take donations via Local Giving
