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 low-cost, 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.
We rely on donations of good-quality used babycare and childcare equipment, as well as donations of nappies and food, from members of the public to run this project. Please see our Donations page for more information.
