About Salford
Sling & Meet.

A Little about us and why
Salford Sling & Meet came about.

Where We Began


Salford Sling & Meet is a not-for-profit community group started in February 2015, with just a handful of slings we ran weekly library sessions at The Vine Cafe.  Over the next three and a half years, we have moved locations twice to accommodate an ever-expanding sling selection and bigger space for social gatherings. Now holding weekly sessions on Wednesday at The Funhouse during school terms and once a month Saturday session at The Vine Cafe.

We offer a range of slings and carriers to fit from newborn babies to preschoolers, at library sessions we can fit and rent out available slings, help with your own slings, teaching new skills and practicing to perfect current skills.

Our sling library is run by five mums, Samantha, Melinda, Hayley who have trained as Slingababy Consultants and  Lucy and Sian who are trained Born to Carry peer supporters to give babywearing advice and support.

We also have an amazing team of lovely local mums that have undertaken Peer Support Training with Born to Carry volunteering at our weekly library sessions.

We also offer a range of Workshops and Consultations.
