Welcome

The Crib works to build a better future for families living in Oldham, Darnhill and Heywood.

We take a step by step approach to reducing the impact of poverty on health. We do this by providing health and wellbeing resources for young families in crisis.

We can support you if you are pregnant or a family with at least one child in nappies.

Once referred in by a health professional or organisation, individuals and families can access this support. For referrals, please click here.
