What Is Baby Rover?
Baby Rover has been developed in response to the local need for families to have easy access to affordable clothing. In partnership with Helping Hand, the Salvation Army, and Care and Share, Better Start has developed the Scheme and will provide support for a three year period.
How do I access this project: This scheme is available to all Blackpool families with children aged 0-3 years inclusive.
The scheme costs just £2.50 for a lifetime’s membership which entitles families to buy bundles of 10 items of babies’ clothing for just £1.00 per bundle. Baby Rover Scheme members can also get a 20% discount on furniture at the Helping Hand Shop and a 20% discount at the Salvation Army Shop in the Citadel.
Blackpool families can join the scheme by completing a form at Helping Hand’s shop or depot and can buy their first bundle of clothes at the same time.
Helping Hand can be found at:
Helping Hand Depot: Unit 9 Brinwell Road, Blackpool, FY4 4QU
Opening Times: Monday – Friday 10am to 5pm
Helping Hand Shop: 28 Cookson Street, Blackpool, FY1 3EF,
Opening Times: Monday – Friday 9am to 4.30pm
Baby Rover also provides volunteering opportunities for people who want to support families who are most in need in our town.
Programme Benefits: This programme is delivered through our Public Health Cornerstone as one of Community Voice’s Community led action projects.
DONATIONS: If you would like to make a donation of clothing to the Baby Rover scheme, please take these to your nearest participating Children's Centre, and your donation will be collected by one of our Community Connectors.
