A Bundle of Hope
Who we are
A Bundle of Hope Baby Bank is part of The Hope Project. We are a registered charity based at New Hope Baptist Church in Coseley. We are volunteer led and rely on donations from our local community to help supply essential items for new born and toddlers up to 2 years of age, and for families in need of extra support.
New Baby Bundle
This includes everything from a Moses basket, stand, and all necessary bed linen, clothes, nappies, sensory and development items, bathing and changing equipment plus many more items. We also include a pack for new moms which includes sanitary and toiletry items. Each family who receives a new baby bundle can return for a follow up pack once baby is born [stock dependant]
A typical New Baby Bundle
0-2 Years of age
We supply essential items for babies and toddlers up to 2 Years of age. This includes; nappies, cotton wool, wipes, sensory and development toys/books. We also supply various donated items if suitable and in good condition.
Who Can make Referrals ?
Health Visitors, Midwives, GP, Family Centres, relevant charities, care providers, community and professional organisations.
How to make a referral
Each organisation will be able to identify the needs of their own client in order to make a referral. If you have identified a need, then we will do our very best to supply that need.
Please complete a referral voucher [these are already held by some organisations and health/family centres] and give that to your client to bring with them. If you are collecting on their behalf, then you need to bring the relevant voucher with you. We are unable to give out any items unless we are in receipt of the voucher. If vouchers are not already available to you, then you can request vouchers by contacting us and we will happily send you a supply of them.
I need support but I'm not sure what to do?
If you are in need of support and would benefit from one of our new baby bundles or have a baby or a toddler up to 2 years of age and need emergency supplies, then please speak to your care provider e.g Your GP, Families Centre, Midwife, Health Visitor etc. If you are unsure then please contact us by email or telephone and we will happily provide you with further information.

We are COVID Secure. Please come to the front entrance of New Hope Baptist Church, Coseley, where you will need to wait outside the roadside gate if there is someone already there before you.

Our work relies on the generosity of our local community; without which, we would struggle to provide for families in need.
