‘Thank you for your warm welcome. We have loved our time spent with the team and we’re in admiration of the work you do in alleviating poverty in the local community’

Maz Page, the founder of Brierley Hill Baby Bank, started the charity in 2019 in her living room after feeling inspired to help a friend in need. Overwhelmed by the kindness of people donating their unwanted baby clothes and toys, Maz has since transformed it into a thriving charity dedicated to supporting families and employs 5 staff and has welcomed over 40 volunteers.

The charity provides families with essential items, including toiletries, nappies, clothes, toys, and pushchairs. Families are referred to the baby bank by a healthcare professional if they need assistance in providing these items for their child (aged 0-2 years, boys and girls). Referrals are taken from the DY1-DY10, b63, B64, B65 areas.

Not only this, the charity support mums with a quiet room to meet with their midwives or a sensory room where families can come for some much needed playtime!

‘We’re overwhelmed with the donations we receive by the general public on a weekly basis, and also with the willingness of our volunteers. They give up their time to help us allowing this charity to continue, it means the world’

Donations to the baby bank are washed, dried and folded in-house and assembled by the team of volunteers into beautiful Moses basket packs (compliance with The Lullaby Trust guidelines for safer sleeping to prevent sudden infant death syndrome).
