Witney Baby Bank has been set up in response to a need in our community, supporting families by providing them with essential baby items and women with menstrual products, free of charge. The COVID-19 pandemic has only put additional pressure on families, many of whom were already at breaking point.
Witney Baby Bank is run by a group of volunteers, working with Cogges Parish in Witney who have given us access to a space to receive, store and distribute.
We are also in contact with Home Start Witney to ensure we reach the families most in need, through referrals. We also have an online form for self referrals.
Fundraising is going quite well but the requests from families needing our support are also flooding in.
