Who We Are

Tippytoes BabyBank was founded by Sue in 2019.

We now have a small staff team and a core group of volunteers who have joined the Tippytoes family. They help to sort and clean donations, pack referrals, deliver items and much more! 

Our babybank is open to anyone who is struggling with the costs of baby essentials. You can refer on a families behalf, or you can self refer.

Wish list

We are always in need of good quality baby items for our baby bank.

We frequently need moses baskets & stands, cots, cotbeds & toddler beds, newborn prams, strollers & doubles. 

Please check our Facebook page for our up to date wish lists – www.facebook.com/tippytoesbb

Sadly there are some items which we CAN NOT accept; these are CAR SEATS, USED MATTRESSES & PREP MACHINES – If in doubt over what we can accept then please get in touch!
