Baby Necessities

Baby Necessities Southampton is a baby bank charity based in Romsey. The charity was started by a couple of local mums during the pandemic of 2020. The creation of Baby Necessities came from a motivation to help alleviate child poverty after watching a documentary on the growing need for baby banks in the UK. Its vision was to support families during hardship, as well as see baby items our children no longer needed, re-used to protect the environment and reduce unnecessary waste.

Although many pre-loved items are donated the charity needs to buy some items new and the grant from Hendy Foundation was used towards items such as mattresses, toiletries, nappies, breast pumps, baby monitors and bottles.
