A brilliant new project has arrived at Castle Mall by the team at Home-Start Northern Ireland. ‘The Baby Bank’ has opened open its doors! A Baby Bank is a bank of products & supplies, from high chairs to clothes to wipes, provided by the community and redistributed to families in need.
The community project was established to relieve poverty, redistribute quality resources and reduce parental stress and improve the lives of children.
"The last year has been very tough for lots of reasons and I have seen a great sense of community being built within our Town and the need to look out for each other. The team at Home Start have been very proactive and adapted their services to fit with the moving needs of their families and community around them. Antrim Town is very much a community space and Castle Mall sits at the heart of this." - Pamela Minford, Centre Manager at Castle Mall The unit is situated next to the Post Office in the mall and is open Wednesday 10am-2pm for Donations, Thursday 10am-12pm for packing parcels and again at 2-4.30 for collections and deliveries.
