Our history

Recognising a need to support vulnerable families in Bradford, founder Vickie initially set up Bradford Baby Bank from her home in late 2017.

With no paid employees, we rely solely on volunteers to source, sort and distribute items needed by vulnerable families across the Bradford District.

Our ability to help relieve some of the impacts of poverty is reliant on the generosity and kindness of others. Since we began, our referral rate has rocketed and our impact across Bradford is significant.

Our impact

Steering group


Vickie is our founder, Chair and oversees the day to day running of Bradford Baby Bank.


Danuta is our community liaison lead and will do anything to help out.


With an eye on the bank account, Emma is our Treasurer. Strangely, she likes the boring admin too.


Anne-marie helps with the admin and referrals on a day to day basis and looks after most things IT related.

Volunteer drivers and sorters

Most of our volunteers also volunteer elsewhere and are true community heroes. Thanks go to each and everyone for stepping up to support where it’s needed.
