The Small Project

The Small Project is a baby clothes library in south London.

We pass on clothes and other items to local families.

Coronavirus update

Dear all. The Small Project has temporarily suspended all drop-in sessions so that we can comply with government guidance to minimise the spread of the virus.

We are accepting urgent referrals only for the time being. Please contact [email protected] to discuss, or complete the referral form here and we will be in touch.

In the meantime we would really appreciate any financial donations to our fundraiser to enable us to open up again soon and to expand our service for all those families who need it. See our page on

Thanks so much for your support.

What we do

The Small Project collects donations of good quality baby clothes and equipment and provides these to families who are referred to us by professionals, or who refer themselves.

We started giving out clothes bundles in 2015. We're a small team of volunteers who want to make sure that good quality baby clothes and equipment, which are no longer needed by one family can easily be passed on to another.

The Small Project is based at Oasis Playspace, next door to the Imperial War Museum in Southwark.

The Small Project is generously assisted by Oasis Waterloo who provide us with space to store our donations and support to run the project. Check out what they do.

Other baby banks

The Small Project is one of a growing number of 'baby banks' around the UK which collect and redistribute baby and children's items to families who need them. If you're not in south London you might want to find out about other baby banks here using this great map created by Stripey Stork.
