Little Village

We run a baby bank network, collecting, sorting and passing on pre-loved clothes and equipment.
Parents are also supported by our dedicated signposting and guidance team, who offer advice and links to other services. In addition, we work with families to share their stories and campaign to fix the systems that trap them in poverty. We operate out of five main centres in London and are powered by an incredible group of committed volunteers. We’ve grown to be one of the largest ‘baby banks’ in the
UK, supporting over 25,000 children since we launched in 2016 – including over 8,000 children in 2023 alone. More information about what we do is on our website.

Although we call ourselves a ‘baby bank’, we provide so much more than just high quality kit to families – at the core of what we do is a desire to build connections across communities, and to create opportunities for people to thrive. We’re committed to alleviating child poverty and we strongly believe that every child deserves the best possible start in life. Our ‘force for change’ work, tackling child poverty, is a central part of what we do – we focus on changing unhelpful and
damaging attitudes and beliefs as well as campaigning for policy change. We’re looking for a trustee to support the Little Village Board’s oversight of the tech improvements identified in our extensive
recent tech review, which looked at our entire digital footprint, from designing and
delivering new tools to enhancing how the charity works across its entire operating
model and for all users. We now have an exciting digital blueprint we wish to execute.
