Safe & Sound

It is a sad fact that children who live in low income families are known to suffer more ill health and home accidents than other children, and suffer from social exclusion in later life. Instant Neighbour aims to enhance the lives of these children and families by:-


  • providing access to high-quality, safety tested babycare and childcare equipment;
  • providing clothing, new toys, nappies and baby food, raising parents’ self-esteem as they can provide a comfortable environment for their children; and
  • encouraging healthy eating, stopping smoking, and promoting good living habits and a healthy environment to improve families’ general health.


The scheme is open to families on a low income with children aged from 0-5 years old.

Further details available on request.


We rely on donations of good-quality used baby-care and childcare equipment, as well as donations of nappies and food, from members of the public to run this project.  All equipment is function tested and PAT tested where appropriate and required.


We accept donations of second-hand:-


  • Buggies & prams
  • Safety gates
  • Cots
  • Moses baskets
  • Baths & accessories
  • Nursery furniture
  • Clothes


We also accept new donations of all of the above items, along with new nappies & baby food.


**Unfortunately, we are unable to accept or provide new or second-hand car seats**
