Baby Basics Northampton

Baby Basics Northampton is a small local charity, covering the whole of Northamptonshire, aiming to support new mothers who are struggling to meet the financial and practical burden of looking after a new baby. Staffed initially by a committed team of volunteers, this year we expect to send out 200 newborn baskets via referrals from Health Care professionals

  • Mission statement

    Baby Basics Northampton provides much needed essentials and equipment to mothers and families who are unable to provide these items for themselves; particularly those from displaced people groups and those seeking asylum. Working with midwives, health visitors and other professional groups to provide support directly where it is most needed, the Baby Basics Northampton team lovingly collect, sort and package a ‘Moses Basket starter pack’ of clothing, toiletries and essential baby equipment as a free, attractive gift of essential items to new mothers.
