Welcome to Sling & Meet inventory site

After a lot of discussion between our volunteer team, we have made the decision to cancel all drop-in sessions until further notice.

While we appreciate a social distancing policy is in place, We want to be cautious as our sessions are social events and the slings will be tried on by many people, we work with lots of people in vulnerable situations, premature babies, newborns, parents and those with underlying health conditions who we wish to protect, including our own volunteers.

While we do already wash our slings, our concern is that a non-symptomatic carrier of a virus tries on a carrier it can then be passed on to a potentially vulnerable person via that carrier.

In order for us to still be able to offer sling return|swap|hire in this time, we will be offering dropbox collections from Sam's Swinton address. If you would like to hire, return or swap a carrier, please get in touch via Facebook or email to info@slingandmeet.co.uk 
We will be offering an 8-week deal in light for the uncertainty.

Drop Box Offer - 8 Weeks for the price of 6
Standard Membership Hire Offer - £30 for upto 8 weeks (Normally £40)
Annual Membership Hire Offer - £15 for upto 8 weeks (Normally £20)

If you have been asked to self-isolate, have respiratory symptoms or fever or have come into contact with suspected cases, please let us know before returning your carrier.

We are unsure when we will be holding our next session but please do keep an eye on your emails and our social media accounts for updates.


We are a non-profit community group created by volunteer parents for parents & carers. We are here to help families and carers carry babies and children safely and confidently in a comfortable way using slings and carriers.

We also offer a range of services to make wearing more accessible to all, including a free newborn stretchy scheme, group workshops and one to one sessions. We run on a first-come-first-served basis.
