Hackney Real Nappy Network

We are a friendly informal network of parents and carers who use and promote real nappies. We run regular events and demos to help people to make a more informed nappy choice and to raise awareness about the free nappy voucher scheme. Would you like a demo at a local parenting class or an information stall at an event? Or if you are already using real nappies then contact us to volunteer and help spread the real nappy love!

Real Nappies for London Voucher Scheme

If you are a Hackney resident and are pregnant or have a child under 18 months you are eligible for a completely FREE voucher worth £54.14 to spend on reusable nappies.  It is really quick and easy to apply, and can be a real help in getting started on your reusable nappy journey.  The voucher can also be spent on a nappy laundry service, such as Hackney’s own local service run by Nappy Ever After. 

 

Attending one of our demos before you spend your voucher can be a great way to find out what you need to know wihtout the overwhelm of looking online, where there can be a lot of jargon and conflicting information.  Everyone is welcome at our events, no matter what stage you are at.

What Hackney Parents Say

Tunde, Seng & Jonatán

“We like using real nappies as we try to be conscious about the environment and we think Jonatán looks great in the different designs too! We have enough prefolds to last a few days and four outer wraps (that we rinse after every use) so we have a very cost efficient system.”

Iva & Oliver

“I can’t resist using reusable nappies because they are fun & colourful. Also, they help with potty training and they don’t sit in landfill for hundreds of years!”

Edouard & Nathan

“We’ve been using real nappies with Nathan since the day we brought him home from the hospital. I’d heard all about the financial and environmental benefits of using them already and the money-off voucher from the council really helped us to get started.”
