Stork Support-baby essentials for families

Visit from the Stork CIC helps families deal with all sorts of issues right from pregnancy through to early parenthood. Due to Covid-19 we have set up Stork Support, a service for parents and parents-to-be in Salford and Manchester. We use a team of dedicated volunteers to deliver essential baby supplies to vulnerable families in need.

 In our first 2 weeks of the project we have delivered 65 packages to families in need! 

So far, we have helped;

 - Refugee families in temporary accommodation unable to get their visa so are not eligible for benefits

- Single mums unable to get out to the shops

- Pregnant women terrified about leaving the house and unable to enjoy their pregnancy

- Families living on maternity pay because their main income has been dropped due to being laid off

- Single dad's with medical conditions so can't get out of the house

- Mums in a women & baby refuge

 We have done this so far with the help and support of our sponsors, The We love MCR Charity, Salford CCG and Salford CVS. We are also taking donations of items from the general public; however, this funding and donations can only help so much.

 We know there are families all over Greater Manchester that need our help, and we expect demand to rise as we reach the peak of the pandemic.

 We need YOUR support so that we can help even more families in need. We are getting a lot of referrals at the moment from families who need support but are finding that there just isn’t enough funding and donations to help everyone.

 We know money is tight at the moment, but a donation of anything you can afford will be able to help in some way. Even if you can’t afford to donate right now, you can support us by sharing this page on your social media using the share buttons and by dropping us a like/follow on our social media pages.
