We ask for a donation of £2 per family to help towards our costs and those of our volunteers and any additional donations will be put towards developing our Sling Library.

The Slingmeet is a relaxed get together with people free to arrive and leave as it suits them. You will be welcomed by one of the Slingmeet team; they are happy to help with any questions you have.  There are a variety of slings available to try on and we can support you in choosing the right carrier for you and in the techniques used to achieve a comfortable and safe position for carrying.

If you have any questions, you can contact us through Facebook or by email.

Buggies and prams are welcome! The studio theatre is up 4 steps once you are through the stage door please let us know on arrival if you would like assistance up the steps.
