How you can get involved in our revolution! - Suffolk Babies

Join us on our mission to revolutionise support for new parents!

Suffolk Babies is a registered CIC (registration no. 10269715) based in Grange Business Centre, Kesgrave.

We saw that things needed changing, so we got out there and did it! But we need your help to do more…

Over the last 3 years we have improved antenatal and postnatal education in Suffolk, and created a hub for local families with babies and young children to access services and support from a central point, as well as offering classes in satellite locations across Suffolk.

We believe being adequately prepared for birth and life with a new baby is key in producing positive birth outcomes, reducing postnatal depression and helping parents to bond with their babies.

With your help we can...

Support more families!

We need to move to a bigger centre, which will allow us to run more classes, courses and workshops for local families. Funding will allow us to provide more free support services for parents – which are vitally needed at a time when free support from Children’s Centres in Suffolk is being cut or downsized.

The more income we receive, the more local families we can support, through providing free or subsidised services. 

Your support will also allow us to make more of our courses available online, so we can reach people who are not able to access services at our centres or one of our satellite venues.

"Couldn't recommend these ladies highly enough. They offer the sort of services that I think would normally only be found in a big city."

We are also looking for volunteers! Are you free for a few hours during the week? We need help entertaining babies during our mum and baby fitness classes, help on the front desk welcoming new arrivals, making tea and coffee for tired mums, and general help with managing the centre.
