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!
As we have been unable to open The PoD, due in March, but have already funded the materials, we need to call on you to help us to keep going meanwhile. We aren’t eligible for any funding since we didn’t actually open, nor have anyone on Payroll. This includes our founder, Kia, who also cannot be financially supported by the government during this time. Therefore we kindly ask you to help us continue to retail via our online store, and continues to hire out our slings and nappies in order to trickle along while we wait for a new launch date.
Thank you so much for you support!
Where are we?
We will be based on Castleward Boulevard, right outside the Intu Centre. Just follow the underpass (next to Calm Yoga )
