PAGE UPDATED 15/9/20
We have closed all drop in sessions with immediate effect on Wednesday 18th March 2020. These steps have been taken to protect our customers and their families, as well as our helpers and volunteers. Now we are working on reinstating our sessions in adapted form one by one, in partnership with the venues. As soon as we have news on any session, we will publish on our blog and Facebook page.
Our ethos has always been to offer sling and carrier support to any family needing it, our drop in sessions have always been free to attend, our carrier hire fees have always remained low, and we have always offered independent support with any type or brand of sling or carrier. We are committed to continuing this support.
Carrier hire is still available at our standard hire rate. Click here to create a hire account. We can offer collection from Farsley most days, Wakefield on our visiting day once every four weeks or by post. We charge postage at cost but add three extra days free to cover transit time. Questions about hire? Contact us.
SUPPORT IN PERSON
Bookable appointments are available for support, advice and fitting at our temporary space in Farsley and on a four weekly basis at our Wakefield venue (next date 18/9/20).
We are offering free 15 minute fitting appointments with each carrier hire, as well as our full selection of bookable sessions.
Book your carrier support or recommendation appointment as a zoom call (or other video platform). Fitting and safety checks available with your own carriers on a pay as you feel basis, or team virtual support with postal hire.
You are welcome to return your carrier and we have remained open for carrier returns throughout. We can offer three ways to return your hired carrier.
BY APPOINTMENT If you’d like to drop your carrier back with us, we can accept returns most days by appointment at the Sling Library house Farsley. Make an appointment if you have questions, would like to swap your carrier for something new, or would like further support. Beginning 18/9/20 we have returns available at our Wakefield venue once every four weeks on a Friday, booking essential. Safety is a priority with all face to face services and extra precautions will be taken.
USE THE DROP BOX at the sling library house Farsley – this can be used for returns in person any time 24/7. It is a wooden box next to the front door at 55 Thornfield Avenue Farsley Leeds LS285HJ. Please place it inside a sealed plastic bag with your name affixed to the outside.
BY POST Carriers can be returned by post to 55 Thornfield Avenue Farsley Leeds LS28 5HJ. Please choose appropriate postage for the value of the carrier you are returning and include your name inside the package. It is suggested that you allow enough time for the carrier to arrive back with us before your hire runs out.
Over the lockdown period and summer of 2020 we have offered carrier hire and support to many families on a pay as you feel basis. If you’d like to contribute to your carrier hire or support our advice service please click below.
