Get help from us

If you would like our help and live in Bexley, Bromley, Greenwich or Lewisham, you need a professional to refer you. This could be a healthcare professional, such as a midwife, health visitor, nurse or GP, a member of staff at a children’s centre, nursery or school, charity, foodbank or other official voluntary organisation to refer you to us. Unfortunately we are not able to accept self-referrals at this time.

If your professional is not already connected to us, you can show them this website and ask them to get in touch using the referral form in the ‘Refer a family to us’ section below.

If you do not live in one of the boroughs we cover, please check the baby bank map below to find an alternative baby bank near you.

Refer a family to us

You can make a referral to us if you are a professional working with the family or at an official voluntary organisation that supports families in poverty. For example, you could work in healthcare as a midwife, health visitor, nurse, lactation consultant or GP. Alternatively you could work for a childcare centre, nursery or school, be a social worker or childminder, or volunteer at a food bank.

Once a referral has been accepted, MammaKind can supply what the family needs most, from children’s clothes, nappies and essential hygiene products to baby equipment and baby food. Please note, we can currently only support families with children aged five years and under, living in Bexley, Bromley, Greenwich and Lewisham.
