Sefton Baby Baskets

Sefton Baby Baskets is a young local organisation dedicated to the youngest members of our community. Set up only two years ago, and led by volunteers, it acts as a ‘baby bank’.

Women who are struggling to provide for a new baby receive a Moses basket containing essentials for the first three months – clothes, nappies, sleep bags, toiletries, muslins, toys, etc. There are pyjamas, slippers and some toiletries for the mothers, too.

How does it work? Health visitors, social workers, welfare staff in housing associations, the Red Cross, refuge staff, etc  identify the need and make the referrals. They collect the baskets and give them to give to the mothers.
