Bump & Beyond

Expecting a baby should be one of life’s most wonderful times

For many new parents, this special time is overshadowed by increased money worries and overwhelming loneliness. For those living in hardship, who are isolated or are homeless, this can be a very frightening time.

We believe this precious period of a new parent’s life should be enjoyed and should get off to a stress-free start. We provide second-hand baby equipment, essential baby products, practical and emotional support to new mums across Stoke-on-Trent and Newcastle-Under-Lyme.

New mums and mums-to-be are referred to us for help from local agencies, such as social services, health visitors, midwives, schools, local family support teams and community groups. We accept self-referrals, please give us a call on 01782 627 017 if you need help.

Emergency Food Parcels

You are not alone, we are here to help

Open every weekday between 11am and 1pm, People’s Pantry provides a three-day emergency supply of food, baby products and toiletries to local families who find themselves without the basic living essentials they desperately need. Families don’t need to fulfil any criteria or to be referred to us.

If you find yourself in need of basic living essentials, such as food, baby products or toiletries, please call us or visit our pantry. Don’t worry, you don’t need to be referred to us by another organisation.
