Your story

Tiny Toes Tiny Feet was established in December 2015 to help support mothers and families who have experienced domestic abuse by providing good quality (pre-loved) second hand items for babies and children.
Tiny Toes Tiny Feet collect donations of baby equipment, clothes, toys and other baby essentials and pass them onto mothers and families who are in desperate need of them for FREE.

We Purely rely on donations and fundraisng.

Group introduction

My name is Samantha Negbenebor and I founded Tiny Toes Tiny Feet 3 years ago, after a friend of mine (single mother)was experiencing financial difficulty following the birth of her second child. I was able to rally my 'mummy friends' to gather a collection of baby items they no longer needed. I was overwhelmed by the generosity of people and thought there must be families out there that also need this help.We are all about helping mothers and families who are specifically experiencing or fleeing DOMESTIC ABUSE environments. We collect donations and then pass them on to families who need it for FREE.
Though we have been running for 3 years we currently work with 1) Hillingdon Independent Domestic Violence Advocacy (part of the Metropolitan Police. 2) Latin American Women's Outreach 3)Asian Women Resource Centre 4) Hillingdon Social services and Sufra Food bank.

We have been able to provide children and families with: Prams, Cots, Moses Baskets, Clothes, Stair gates, nappies, wipes, bottles, formula,shoes, books, toys,the list goes on.

How would this funding have an impact on your community?

This funding would have a major impact on our community, we would be able to have a few donation bins in key areas so people can donate 24 hours (at the moment I am doing all the collections).

All donated items are currently being stored in my garage, which has limited the amount of new donations we can receive. This funding will allow us to rent a space.

We would like to do a Fun Day for all the families that have used or supported Tiny Toes (this could also increase our marketing). This would consist of face painting, a soft ball area and crafts. We would also have a talk on domestic abuse and the help that is out there.
