Sebby’s Corner believes no child should go without the basic essentials they need to thrive. We offer a range of services such as family referrals where we provide items as clothing, nappies, formula, toiletries and baby equipment and our Birthday Club where we ensure children don't go without gifts on their birthday. We support families living in poverty, families in temporary accommodation, women and their children who have fled domestic abuse, refugees, asylum seekers and victims of modern slavery and human trafficking. We regularly hear stories of parents who go without food so they can buy formula or parents reusing soiled nappies as they can't afford to buy anymore. Families can be referred to us by any professional such as midwives, health visitors and teachers. Our support stretches across Hertfordshire, Barnet, Brent, Ealing, Essex and Enfield. We currently work with 241 referral partners from 138 different organisations.
"For those children who have fled leaving their special things behind, it gives them back a sense of self and ownership. The ripple effect of the items given has spread through the family. Mum knows her children are happy and she can begin rebuilding the family unit. To us, Sebby's Corner is like having a friend we can rely on, one who understands and one who makes life in refuge a little bit easier."
