Pelican Parcels’ vision is a community in which families and carers all have the essentials for their children.
They take pre-loved and new item donations for babies and children up to age 10, and redistribute them to families facing financial hardship via various existing family services in Brighton & Hove.
In the most recent Child Poverty Index it was estimated that 19.6% of Brighton & Hove’s dependent children are living in poverty. Brighton & Hove as a city has high rates of children in need, in care and with child protection plans and/or who have been referred to children’s social care services.
Pelican Parcels aims to provide all essentials from cots and clothes, toys and books, prams and play mats for families from birth up to the age of 10. All donations go directly to families at no cost.
