is a community group that is not-for-profit. We are dependent on funds from sling hire and meets/library attendance in order to help maintain our provision and expand and improve our support.
We are asking for:
- our local families to attend and pay the £3 attendance fee, to hire slings, join in on our raffle fund raisers, etc.
- our local enthusiastic sling wearers to consider supporting us with set up and pack away, paperwork management during sling sessions.
- other local sling trained and those who want to be, to join with us to improve our service and ability to reach more families
- our local business to support us through helping us with behind the scenes support eg safety mirrors, demo dolls, storage boxes, funding, sling sponsorship, raffle items, etc.
Working with others
We also work with the other local sling meets nearby to help provide cover over UK nationally. as well as working closely with other local groups and babywearing libraries within berkshire and the surrounding area.
