About PramDepot

PramDepot is an arts-led recycling project that provides high quality recycled baby clothes and equipment to new mums who receive support through Birth Companions Helen Bamber Happy Baby Group and 20 other organisations in and around London.

PLEASE NOTE THAT WE DO NOT TAKE SELF REFERRALS, SO PLEASE DO NOT SEND MUMS TO US DIRECTLY AS WE ARE NOT SET UP FOR THEM TO VISIT. 

We are currently closed again for Donations till Mid March 2019. We are now moving at the end of February, and need to reduce our stock.

If anyone knows a removal firm who would like to help please get in touch at pramdepot@mail.com

Spotlight 3

Over the Autumn of 2018 we ran a festival called Spotlight on Asylum www.spotlightonasylum.com and an Online Art Auction which included artists including Tracy Emin, Rachel Whiteread, Antony Gormley, Mark Wallinger, Alison Wilding and David Batchelor. See the results at spotlightonasylum.com/angel-auctions

Through the festival and art auction we raised just over £30,000. This money will pay for our storage and processing costs for the next 18 months. We would like to say a massive thank you to all the artists, local people, politicians, friends, organisations and especially  the women that we support who took Part in the Project.

  1. Do you take used baby bottles and sippy cups, that can be sterilised?
    If so, let me know how and when to drop them off to you
    Many thanks, Ruth

  2. Hi,

    I have a crib, baby/toddler bath, a few baby clothes (0-3 months) and maternity clothes that I would like to donate. Just wondering if you have a collection facility whereby someone can come and pick these up. I don’t have a car so unfortunately can’t get the crib to you.
    I live in central London NW3.

    Do let me know.

    Thanks,
    Bhamti

  7. thanks Karen, its that email address where I am getting a bounceback! is there a different address I can use?

    • Hi mike
      I have just tested pramdepot@mail.com form my email and it went through so maybe just copy address rather than send email from link it might be WordPress that’s the problem. If not PM me on Facebook Karen Lois Whiteread and I’ll message you my personal email address.
      Thanks again love Karen

  8. Hi there,
    I just want to check that you still need new born girls/neutral clothes? Also is there parking near you or could someone meet me to grad the clothes? (two kids in the car!)
    Many thanks!

  9. Hi, Actually I have triplet babies n i need double buggy if it possible can you plz contact me or give me ur contact thnx

  10. Hello,
    Do you take nursing bras? I’ve got a couple that I no longer need. They’re used but still perfectly serviceable.
    Sarah

  11. I have got some children’s equipment. It is in good condition because I got it for my grandchildren – so it wasn’t used very much. What I’ve got is:

    1 x Baby Carrier (like a back pack or rucksack) hardly used

    2 x Mothercare stair gates

    2 x wooden highchairs – natural pale coloured wood

    2 x wooden cots, natural coloured, each with mattress – but maybe you don’t want mattresses and a duvet and bedding

    1 x floor mat with hanging toys – I think it is like a Jungle Gym.

    Would any of these be any good for the Pram Depot, or maybe you wouldn’t have enough room?

    I could bring it all to you

    Let me know what you think.

    • Hi Lesley
      We would love your baby items but I’m afraid we don’t take cots due to storage but we would love everything else in clouding bedding.
      Many thanks for thinking of us.
      Love Karen xx

      Ps please note we will not be open this week due to family bereavement x
