Tune in to The Power of Impact podcast to here our CEO, Cat Ross, discussing the nature of poverty in the UK, and how we can work in partnership to alleviate it.
“In this discussion with Cat Ross, we learn about the origin of Baby Basics, how it has grown from a small organisation in a church building to a UK-wide charity delivering vital equipment to thousands. Championed by the likes of The Princess of Wales and Kate Bottley, the charity has found itself at the forefront of delivering relief to families.”
We are so thankful for all the wonderful donations from our amazing supporters – we couldn’t do the work we do without all the amazing companies and people who donate such wonderful essential items needed for life with a new baby.
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.
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.
