Baby Support Charity Seeking Operating Venue in Eastbourne

Baby Bank & Beyond CIC is volunteer run and accepts good quality, donated items of clothing, equipment (like prams and highchairs), bedding and  toys and distributes them to families who, for whatever reason, may be unable to provide basic items for their baby to be, baby or child.

Although we mainly cover Eastbourne, we also reach Heathfield, Hailsham, Polegate, Pevensey and Lewes.  We are open to requests not only from health and community professionals but also from families directly.

We are currently hosted in Eastbourne by Simon Rooksby at Computers for Charities who has been very kind and generous to us over the last 12 months and without whose support we would not still be operating.

In the next 18 months it is likely demand will dictate that we will outgrow the space we have been given and sadly, we will be seeking an alternative venue.

We hoped that a space inside a community church would be suitable as many of our Baby Bank values are also Christian values.

We seek a large room that we can access independently, that will be suitable for families to pick up and deliver to and will have access to facilities for our volunteers (all of whom are DBS checked).

I will need to apply for funding to cover the costs associated with any venue.

I am hoping that someone might consider sharing some space with us in 2025 so we can increase the number of families we assist more effectively and increase our volunteer numbers.
