Harrow Sling Meet and Library is a social space for those wishing to carry their baby or toddler, and those already doing so. We also offer informal support and the opportunity to hire a sling or carrier.
We are a voluntarily run, not for profit enterprise – all profits from the rentals go back into hall hire, insurance, and the upkeep and replacement of slings.
As a group we do not adhere to any particular style of parenting; we are a friendly, non-judgemental group, who love to meet and support parents from all backgrounds, walks of life, and parenting styles.
Our slings and carriers can all be hired at the rate of £10 for one month (28 days), with the option to exchange within that month. We offer a special rate on stretchy wrap hire of £20 for 3 months; however please note that if you decide to swap for a buckle carrier within that time, the special rate will no longer apply, and the cost will revert back to £10 per month. If you decide you would like to renew your hire at the end of the month, simply hold on to it, and it will automatically be renewed.
We take payment by credit/debit card via our online system, which stores your card details (in encrypted form), as cover for potential loss or damage. In this situation your card would be charged the full cost of replacing the sling.
Information on all our slings, including Recommended Retail Price and links to Library approved YouTube videos can be found under Our Slings. You can even create an account and add your payment details in preparation for your visit, and save time on the day.
Please be aware that as volunteers we will mostly have our own young children with us, so we kindly ask for your patience as we tend to our children’s needs through the often quite busy sessions.
