Who Are We

Baby Bank Norfolk was established in January 2016 and we started distributing items in May 2016. We are a volunteer-run group started by a local Mum who saw the need for somewhere to act as a middle “man” between those wishing to pass on Baby items and those in the area in need of support.

We gained Registered Charity status in May 2016 and our Registered Charity Number is 1167380.

We were fortunate in the early days to get support from Stripey Stork, a baby bank in Surrey and Baby Bank Network in Bristol. The wisdom of these two established Baby Banks was invaluable in those early days and we thank Stripey Stork for sharing many of their resources with us and allowing us to use their ideas.

In our first few months we helped over 75 families and we have over 100 registered referral agents. Our aim is to help 200 families in 2017.

The Team

Victoria Woods
Victoria WoodsFounder & Chair of Trustees
Victoria is a mum of one toddler and over Christmas 2015 had the idea to start Baby Bank Norfolk. Seeing articles about poverty levels in Norfolk, and being unable to find a way locally to donate her own used baby items to those in need, Victoria realised there was a need for a Baby Bank locally.
In addition to running the Baby Bank with her team of lovely volunteers Victoria also runs her own Newborn Baby & Child Photography business, Pennycress Photography
