Dear Baby Cafe Community

Thanks to funds from a variety of sources, including many very generous donations from our service users, we have funding to maintain our current 5 weekly sessions until April 2017. We will not have to close 2 sessions at Christmas after all as previously posted here! Our future is still far from certain, however, and we welcome donations on our Local Giving page https://localgiving.org/charity/obcg/. Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who has already donated and thanks also to the dedicated team of fundraisers who have been working really hard to raise money for us. (If you would like to help, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. would love to hear from you!)

We have also received a grant from Oxford Community Foundation which will enable us to restart a monthly antenatal session probably from February 2017. This will be linked with one of our remaining Baby Café sessions, to enable an easy follow-through from antenatal to regular Baby Café. Again, we will let you know the details as soon as they are finalised.

Please share this as widely as possible, and encourage those who have used our service to "pay it forward" by making a donation so that we can continue to support other families.

With the closure of some of the children's centres who have warmly hosted us for many years there will likely be some venue changes at some point in 2017. Check back here for the latest scheduling and venue information.
