Kate Middleton Plays Royal Hostess at Her Third Christmas Carol Concert at Westminster Abbey

Our CEO, Cat, spoke to PEOPLE today about what Early Years focus of Together at Christmas today means to us and all those working so hard in the sector.

“Cat Ross, the CEO of Baby Basics, says the carol service will help give the country’s thanks to some of those who help support families and children throughout the year. At a time of rising living costs, Kate has been highlighting the work that baby banks and food banks can do to help support communities. And she is spearheading an appeal for kids’ clothing and food and gifts over the holiday season.

“This is the culmination of a lot of things that the Princess has led on this year,” Ross tells PEOPLE.”

What an honour!

Our CEO, Cat Ross, has been invited by the South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority to be part of a team of 8 taking part in the Bloomberg/Harvard City Leadership Initiative – focusing on health inequalities in the early years.

This includes an intensive week of teaching, researching & planning in NYC (All cost covered by Bloomberg Philanthropies). We are excited to be working with other key leaders in South Yorkshire from NHS, LA’s & Sheffield Hallam University.

Cat’s hope is that not only will we see plans to improve lives for 0-5yr olds in South Yorkshire but the implementation can be replicated across other areas of the UK.

Last Homes for Ukraine Referral… for now!

Yesterday was emotional as we packed up the last (for now 🤞) referral for #homesforukraine families & shipped them out. We are proud to have supported 2980 Ukrainian children, their families & their hosts since April.
We hope to be able to support more Ukrainian families resettling in the UK next year from our warehouse. Huge thank you to all our volunteers, our funders, our corporate supporters & everyone who has donated through our wish lists.
