Growbaby was established in 2003. Interventions vary from simply providing a cot to supplying everything for a new mum, or giving long term practical support and advice to a family for an extended period of time. We have worked with mothers, fathers, grandparents, friends, social services, health care workers, the police, the domestic violence teams and neighbours.
Over the years that Growbaby has been going we have helped a huge number of families. Many of them have needed "one off" help, but we have many more families who we have been helping over the whole period of time. Because we do not have a referral system to Growbaby and anybody can contact us, our calls come from far and wide.
For the last few years Growbaby has also linked with the children and staff at Epsom College who have held a Christmas toy service. In 2015 this allowed us to provide 1,500 presents for families in the Borough of Kingston.
It has been our privilege and joy to serve this community.
