The Baby Equipment Bank at Oasis of Life Church takes referrals from agencies in contact with people who need help obtaining baby equipment. The project works in the same way as the SCM Basics Bank – taking in equipment as donations from the public, cleaning and storing it, before giving it away for free to those in need. However they use their own referral system and network.
How to Refer / Contact the Baby Equipment Bank
If you have service users who could benefit from this project, you can refer them directly to the Baby Equipment Bank by making an Equipment Request via:
