Little Village supports families with babies and children under five living in poverty across London. We run a baby bank network, collecting, sorting and passing on pre-loved clothes and equipment. Parents are also supported by our dedicated signposting and guidance team, who offer advice and links to other services. In addition, we work with families to share their stories and campaign to fix the systems that trap them in poverty.
Love, solidarity, thriving and sustainability underpin everything we do.
Since we launched in 2016, Little Village has fulfilled more than 32,000 requests for support and provided more than £9.8m worth of baby equipment and clothes.
We are based in London, with hubs in Camden, Wandsworth, Brent, Hackney and Hounslow.
