WE ARE CURRENTLY EXPERIENCING A HUGE DEMAND IN THE DUBLIN AND EAST AREAS, SO OUR WAITING LIST IS CURRENTLY A LOT LONGER THAN WE WOULD LIKE. WE APOLOGISE AND WILL GET TO EVERYONE AS SOON AS WE CAN, BUT PLEASE BE AWARE IT WILL BE AT LEAST 3-4 WEEKS IN MOST CASES.
Are you pregnant or have recently had a baby?
Are you struggling to get the essentials for your baby?
Do you need some practical assistance?
Community Connect is here to offer you some help.
We can help with essential things such as pre-loved baby clothes, blankets, nappies and some larger pre-loved items (subject to availability).
If you – or someone you know – is pregnant or a new parent and in need, please complete the following form and click the ‘Submit’ button (if submitting on behalf of someone else, please input their details and not your own, and ensure you have their permission first)
Please submit ONE FORM PER FAMILY
Please Read the Following Before Completing the Form:
We are very sorry, but we are unable to provide formula. If you are struggling to provide food for your baby, please contact your Public Health Nurse for assistance.
We only have children’s clothes up to age 2 years (or sometimes 3 years), so if your child is older than this, we are unlikely to have what you need
We do not have toys
We cannot pass on used carseats for safety reasons
We are unable to supply items such as nappies on an ongoing basis to the same family, as we have to spread our resources out between everyone who asks us for help. We can return however after 3 months with the next size of clothing, if your child needs it
We are not an emergency service and are run by volunteers, so although we will do our best to get to those who need it as quickly as possible, there is often a wait of a few weeks until we can get to you
