Story

Little Village is coming to Camden!

Run entirely by local volunteers, Little Village works a bit like a food bank but instead of food, provides good quality baby clothes, toys and equipment to families in need in the local area. Everything is donated by local families and given to local families who can't afford to buy it.

We have just secured a great home in a second area of London, Camden where 36% of children in this borough live below the poverty line.

But we need to raise money to pay our rent so our volunteers can concentrate their energies on doing what they do best - collecting, sorting and distributing kit to those in need. Please help us reach our target - so that we can bring our much needed service to Camden!

How does Little Village work?
We offer a weekly drop-in service for families who need our support and a delivery service for larger items. We work on a referrals basis with our partners such as health visitors, Children’s Centres, midwives and local food banks. Families can either drop in with a voucher to visit our stockroom themselves, or our volunteers put together bags of kit on their behalf.

We make it easy for local families to help one another in a respectful, non-judgemental, non-patronising way. Just one family helping another!

Praise for Little Village:
Mum of Two: "I came to see you yesterday, and I wanted to say another thank you to all of you. I'm so grateful for the itemsI got and wanted you to know this is a great help to my family. I was amazed at the quality of the goods gifted and the sheer generosity of the charity."

Children's professional: "The process to make a referral is straightforward along with the impeccable, speedy service delivered by the kind volunteers in organising each family'd items."

Referrals:
If you know a family who would benefit from our services, or would like to join our volunteer network – please get in touch: littlevillagehq@gmail.com

    Just a quick update to say, Little Village Camden has begun to take donations this month. In just two mornings, we have collected a storage unit full of cots, buggies, baby baths, highchairs, toys, nappies clothes and lots more. We will start taking referrals in January working together with Camden support services and hostels. We haven't raised enough money for our rent yet, but we're hopeful we will have a permanent home in Camden in early 2017.

    A big thank you to all our new supporters. Thanks to your generosity we have almost raised 40% of our funding in 3 weeks. Hooray! That's no mean feat! I thought you might want to see the piece about our campaign that appeared in the Ham and High last week - it definitely gave us a bit of a boost. Thank you again!

    Thank you everyone for your amazing generosity. In particular thank you to the anonymous donors who I will never be able to thank in person. We are a third of the way there and hopefully we have some good local publicity coming out soon that will give us a boost. Stay tuned!
