Eco Store - ethically sourced products chosen for you | Sling & Nappy Library - hire to trial before you buy | Parent Hub - at The PoD, Derby City Centre for classes, workshops and more...

Opening soon!

ETA: June 2020

Your parent hub – The PoD (Parents of Derby) is opening very soon! We are so very excited to bring to you, an Eco Store retailing ethical parent and baby related products, carefully sourced by us, and a parent hub for workshops, classes and more. You will be able to call in Monday – Saturday for our Sling & Cloth Nappy Library, consultations, demonstrations and other parent support.

We aim to bring together many services from across the city, to one central location, making it easier for you to access support. We fund this entirely from the Eco Store, reinvesting profits to support you and your family. Shopping with us, supports your community.

Thank you so much for your support!

What is The PoD?

It is a city centre location for all services to run from for The Parents of Derby (PoD), regardless of funding status. In a time of cuts, we shouldn’t suffer a lack of support. Cariad Babi funds this space using profits from our Eco store.

We have baby groups, support groups in mental health, infant feeding, clothing banks, cake clubs and more, all waiting to use The PoD.

Thank you to everyone who supported our crowdfunder, we are now waiting for The PoD to be fitted and will announce our opening date soon!

Where are we?

We will be based on Castleward Boulevard, right outside the Intu Centre. Just follow the underpass (next to Calm Yoga wink)
