Get help to buy reusable nappies

Reusable nappies are a great alternative to disposal nappies.

Even if you use a combination of reusable nappies and disposables, you’ll save money.

We can help

At first, it can be expensive to buy the reusable nappies and that puts some parents off. We may be able to help you with the initial investment.

You can get £30 off when you spend a minimum of £45 on reusable nappies or apply for a reusable nappy start up kit.

  • apply for a £30 voucher before you buy the nappies
  • claim £30 cash back after buying the nappies (you will need to have an itemised receipt), or
  • apply for a reusable nappy start up kit
