96% OF NEW PARENTS BENEFITTING FROM BABY BOXES

SNP MSP Sandra White has hailed the success of the Scottish Government Baby Box scheme – as new figures revealed that 30,691 of families in Glasgow have benefitted from a Baby Box.

Across Scotland, over 120,000 Baby Boxes have been delivered since April 2017.

Scotland’s Baby Box contains a selection of clothes, as well as every day must-haves, like a bath towel, a travel changing mat, muslin cloth squares, a bib, a digital thermometer, and books.

The box now also includes a reusable nappy voucher, which 1141 families in NHS Glasgow and Greater Clyde have taken advantage of.

Commenting, SNP MSP Sandra White said:

“Every child, regardless of their circumstances, should get the best start in life.

“At the heart of the Baby Box is a message about tackling inequality, improving health and supporting new parents – which is why I’m delighted to see that over thirty thousand have been sent to families across Glasgow and Greater Clyde.

“96% of expectant parents are now requesting a Baby Box – and more than 120,000 have been delivered across Scotland. 

“That’s a huge vote of confidence in the Baby Box, which will be vitally important in our efforts to ensure that all children get the best start in life.”
