The sling library runs in two ways – you can choose between our drop in services, or make an appointment just for you.
Our Drop In services are free to attend, regular, and use a variety of venues which might be more local or convenient for you. You do not need an appointment to attend Drop in services, and you can use them as often as you like. Drop in services are run by carrying consultants and peer supporters who have undergone training in safe sling and carrier use. Most are very experienced at helping others to fit carriers well, and all use carriers with their own children. Most of our supporters at drop in sessions are volunteers who have their own children with them. Drop in sessions can be busy, and we have to ensure time to see everyone, so the amount of time we can spend with each family will be limited by how many families attend on the day. We’ll always ask for your patience at busy times.
Appointments can be made at the sling library house which is in Farsley, Leeds. We offer at least one day per week bookable for appointments. We charge for the appointment service, working with you to decide what length of time you will need for the things you’d like to try or skills you’d like to learn.
