We welcome working with other health & social care, midwifery, childcare, education, mental health, and 3rd sector partners.
Unfortunately we cannot accept referrals from family or friends.
There are many reasons why families may need to access our service for emergency and/or ongoing clothing support. You know your families the best, and will know what support they would benefit from.
Support for Families
We can offer one off emergency clothing bundles up to age 12 for emergency situations such as fleeing domestic violence, emergency foster care placement, persons fleeing war.
We can offer ongoing clothing support for children age 0 – 6 years.
All emergency bundle requests are anonymous with some basic information required about the family circumstances so that we can measure our impact. The referring organisation will need to arrange collection of the bundle from our HQ in Urmston M41.
Once a family has received a bundle from us, they will be invited for ongoing support as their child grows (Trafford area only).
As the professionals looking after these families, you know their needs better than anyone. We do not means test our service as we trust your judgement of a families need as the professional.
