About Blushbaby


Babies do their own thing!  Some arrive early without warning, others arrive just at a time when things are going a little crazy in their new family... house moves, a relationship breakdown, illness or financial difficulties, all make those early days less than the ideal Parenting Magazine stereotype.  And, as babies grow, the parenting thing doesn't come with a crystal ball or instruction manual and there are more than a few times we could all do with a little lucky break. 



How to get help:

1.  Click the get help button to nominate yourself or someone you know.  Or if you prefer, email or call 01626 368069 (not 24 hours)

2.  We'll get in touch and check any details so we get to know you and find out what would really help

3.  We may have some items immediately in our store - we'll get them to you promptly.

4.  If we don't have the item you need, we raise an appeal to the community and supporters come forward to help...we handle the communication and you don't need to speak or provide your personal details to strangers.  It may sometimes take a little while to find items but we will do our best to help.

5.  If you need any other emotional support, we'll stay in touch and help where we can, or signpost you to other people.

6. In the future you may want to give back by volunteering or donating but no pressure at all!

Important: All donated items are received by us in good faith and we take care to ensure they are visibly in good, clean condition. However, we take no responsibility for their suitability or efficiency and it is the new owner's responsibility to ensure any safety checks to their own satisfaction.  We cannot take return of items that transpire to be faulty.  Wellbeing in Action do not provide goods, we simply provide a service to match donations with people in need.  

PS.  You might also be interested in our Blushbaby Club for younger Mamas.  Friendship, activities, support and looking after your wellbeing.  Visit the Peer support club page for more details.

Asking for support can feel embarrassing and many parents already feel they're failing their children, but please don't feel this way.  Our team have all been in your shoes at some point.  The Good Karma Club is about receiving help when you need it, and being able to pay it forwards when you are in a better place.  It's about keeping your dignity and not being judged.  


If your child/ren's wellbeing is at risk because of practical issue - just follow the steps below and get in touch and we'll try to help as quickly as we can.  

Our Blushbaby Department supports babies & children aged 0-12 who find.  As part of our Good Karma Club, we link the community to the people who need them, and act as a safe and trusted go-between to make all the arrangements to get clothing, equipment, educational items, nursery and bedroom items, furniture and sensory items out to you.
