What is the Fledgling Scheme?
We are offering a 50% rebate (in the form of store credit) on full priced wraps for those baby-wearers who are completely new to woven wraps. Our aim is to support more new people to carry safely, comfortably and confidently with woven wraps.
WHY WAS IT SET UP?
We know that woven wraps can seem expensive at first, especially if you aren’t 100% sure that wrapping will be ‘right’ for you and your family. We also know that people who receive good early support and advice, and who use a woven wrap that functions really well will have far more positive experiences of wrapping and grow to love it!
We wanted to reduce the hurdle of price by offering a generous incentive, and address issues around the initial learning curve by encouraging babywearers to seek support from local babywearing services and by offering them excellent materials to work with. It has been said that our wraps “wrap themselves” which is quite handy for a beginner!
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
Anyone who is new to woven wraps, who doesn’t currently own one within their household and who would like to use wraps as one of their main methods of baby carrying.
HOW DO PEOPLE ACCESS THE SCHEME?
The scheme is only delivered through libraries and babywearing educators.
Applicants should be offered tailored support, advice and education by the library/educator, and also have the opportunity to wrap with one of our wraps.
If you feel that they meet the criteria, you need to :
- give the applicant your code to use on their purchase
- fill in an online application form with their details
The applicant will have 50% of the value of the wrap added as credit to their account with us, within 7 days of their purchase, provided that you have completed the form.
CAN I BECOME A FLEDGLING SCHEME LIBRARY / EDUCATOR?
Yes! You need to sign up with us first though and are required to have one of our wraps available to use in your library stock.
HOW DOES MY LIBRARY BENEFIT FROM PARTICIPATING?
To acknowledge your contribution to the Fledgling scheme we will credit your library account with 5% of the value of every successful applicant’s wrap. You can spend this in store whenever/however you like.
We can also help you develop your library. Looking to train peer supporters? Need promotional materials, help with workshops etc? Email us at [email protected] to see how we can help.
