WHAT WE DO
The Preloved Project is a community initiative that helps families in financial hardship by providing care packages of much needed items such as warm coats, clothing, shoes, plus toys and books just to spread a little joy!
There is no charge for any of our services. We do not take individual requests but use our partner organisations such as
Baby Basics, HomeStart and Barnet Children’s and Family Services to reach families in need.
We are based in Barnet, London but currently assist support workers in a few neighbouring boroughs so if you represent an organisation and think we could help, get in touch!
We gift preloved clothes in excellent condition to families in need. For each request we receive, a full wardrobe package is lovingly curated to include a coat, shoes and whatever specific or additional requests we've been notified of. We have sizes from newborn up to age 14. We also provide clothing packages for Mum, and where requested, Dad too.
We have a huge collection of toys and games from new born baby up to teenagers.
We have also been fortunate to have been donated bikes, scooters, tricycles, you name it!
Each toy is cleaned, sterilised where possible and filled with new batteries....we've even used fabric softener to restore Barbie doll's hairdos, to ensure that they look their best and the next recipients can truly enjoy them!
We have a small range of baby equipment in stock but we have reciprocal relationships with organisations that can provide more. For each request that comes in, wherever possible we will source what is needed. Just ask!
