Smile FREE baby clothes and equipment ONLY for parents on a low income

Official MoneySavingExpert.com Insert

What's the deal?

CareConfidential, which is part of the CARE charity, offers free baby clothes and equipment to those on genuine low incomes. Around 60 crisis pregnancy centres around mainland UK are involved, and eligibility is worked out on a case-by-case basis.

If this is for you, click the link below for the list of centres. Opening times are generally very limited, so phoning your local centre first's a must.

Thanks to discobaby for the post.

It might also be worth contacting your local Sure Start centre. I know our local one has loads of baby clothes and equipment donated to them that they can't rehome! :confused:

I'm on the Parent's Forum at my local sure start centre & we asked about donating old clothes & equipment a while ago & were told we can't do it.
I think it was more the equipment, as it would be 2nd hand and we would be held liable if a child were to have an accident due to a fault on the item.

Where is your local sure start ? It might be worth me bringing this up again in our next meeting

Default Care confidential

Good morning all, I would like to do a quick response to Violetta, regarding the above site, I am a volunteer for one of the care confidential centres and would like to say that saying that they are a anti Abortion prolife group makes them sound very harsh, in fact these centres offer free pregnancy tests and counselling to anybody that wants it, they do this in not a forceful way but in a kind and generous way, they offer a free choice for any one and want to help them whatever they choose to do with their pregnancy, ladies can even return if they decide to have an abortion and feel that they need help with counselling afterwards, hope that this helps gives people a better first hand experience about what care confidential is all about

many thanks for reading

What a lovely initiative to give families practical help to continue with a pregnancy when financial worries may sway them to abort their unborn! I hope this offer is not abused then as it is a really great idea

I did say I wasn't being judgemental, I hadn't heard of the group prior to this thread so I googled it ( 6 month's ago) and there were a few entries in google that showed that they were anti abortion, apologies if they are not, or that my post was misleading.
I am all for women being supported in any way possible.
Booo!!!

Default More free baby stuff!

I also volunteer for a Charity which does similar for famillies in need. The Life Charity offers free counselling, baby clothes, equipment and even housing for those facing distressing pregnancies, those with famillies or those who have suffered a miscarriage, infertility or abortion. Anyone is welcome in the centre and it is a shame that at present we have a store room full of prams, cots and clothes that aren't being used!
Life also has a 'pro-life' ethic but all that means is that we cannot arrange abortions or distribute the morning after pill. All women (and men!)are welcome, and we actually offer a specialised post-abortion counselling service free too. Noone would be judged negatively.
To find a centre near you, follow this link
http://www.lifecharity.org.uk/caring/map
Again, we would ask that the service is not abused and used for those who really need it.
