Bromley Relief in Need and Bromley Brighter Beginnings are partnering to deliver a new joint campaign – ‘A Healthy Home for Every Child’

The aim of this campaign is to raise funds to provide basic kitchen appliances for families in need, living in the London Borough of Bromley.

Many families do not have a fridge to store perishable food in, or a cooker with which to prepare hot meals. With the current rise in food poverty and many families struggling financially, we will provide eligible households with white goods to enable them to feed themselves and the children in their care with healthy, nourishing, warm meals. We will be working with a local supplier of kitchen appliances to ensure prompt, safe delivery and installation of the necessary items.

Bromley family charity sees referrals rise by a third

Referrals to a Bromley charity which provides essentials for local families have risen by a third over the last year, as the pandemic stretches domestic budgets. Bromley Brighter Beginnings, run entirely by volunteer mums, helps families in poverty who cannot afford basic items, such as nappies, baby formula and school clothing.

Referrals to a Bromley charity which provides essentials for local families have risen by a third over the last year, as the pandemic stretches domestic budgets. Bromley Brighter Beginnings, run entirely by volunteer mums, helps families in poverty who cannot afford basic items, such as nappies, baby formula and school clothing. The charity has seen a 32% increase in referrals over the last year and is facing an uncertain future, with demand for services only expected to grow over coming months as a second wave of coronavirus hits the country.

Beds
Bed for Every Child – A Safe Place to Dream

Following the success of our ‘Bed for Every Child’ campaign over the last two years, we are relaunching the programme to ensure each child across the borough has a bed of their very own. Recent figures, according to End Child Poverty, revealed a shocking 20 per cent of children in Bromley live in poverty. Sadly, we regularly hear from our referrers about families where children do not have a bed of their own – instead, they are sleeping on the floor, the sofa, or sharing a bed with another family member.
