Coronavirus procedures

Every step has been taken by us to reduce the risk of infection from coronavirus whilst preparing and delivering these items to you.

Items have been quarantined, washed and prepared by volunteers wearing face coverings and gloves.

However, to ensure your continued safety, we advise you to:

  • Use the hand sanitiser provided before touching the collection area.
  • Quarantine items for 72 hours before use.

On return to us:

  • We will quarantine Sling before observing it for damage/staining
  • We will thoroughly wash all items as required  following manufacturers’ instructions. Particular attention paid to cleaning sling buckles, which should be thoroughly wiped using anti-viral wipes.

Sickness: 

  • If at the time the items are due for return either you or any members of your household are displaying coronavirus symptoms or are within a period of self-isolation following symptoms or contacted by Test and Trace, then the return should be delayed until the point at which no-one in the house-hold is required to self-isolate. Please notify the library if this is the case at the earliest opportunity as this delay may affect waiting list parents.

Upon return of the items, they will be quarantined for 72 hours before any checking and so there will be a short delay in the refund of any deposits

 

NCT Terms & Conditions of Sling Hire

 

  • When using a hired baby sling, your child’s safety is your responsibility. Misuse can cause injury to the wearer and child.  It is your responsibility to ensure that you are using the sling correctly and that your baby or child is safe at all times when using the sling.
     
  • Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully and check for signs of wear and tear so as not to put your child at risk. Check;
    • buckles are secure with no cracks, breaks or missing pieces.
    • webbing and safety elastic is attached with no rips or frays.
    • carrier stitching is secure, no rips, tears, holes or obvious wear and tear.

      Signing this agreement means you have checked and confirmed that the sling is in working order. If any damage is discovered, stop using the sling immediately and contact us.
       

  • We suggest that, after familiarising yourself with the instructions given, you then practice using the sling with a doll/teddy or cushion/pillow so that you get used to the tying/fastening/adjusting methods.  It is sensible to have another adult present on the first few occasions you put your child in the sling.
     
  • The hire rate is £10 per four calendar weeks.  A deposit is required, in the form of £40 by secure online card payment. (If cheque is used, your cheque will not be banked and will be returned to you on the safe return of the hired sling. Should the sling be lost or damaged beyond normal wear and tear, the deposit cheque, card payment or cash will be banked to pay for a replacement.)
     
  • Slings must be returned on time unless by prior agreement.  We may be unable to extend a loan if we have a waiting list.  Please note that it is your responsibility to return the sling to the library.
     
  • A late fee of £1 per day will apply to unarranged late returns.
     
  • Please take good care of the sling and any instruction material or accessory that comes with your sling so that they can be used to help more parents in the future.
     
  • We ask that all slings are returned in a clean and usable condition but please do not wash the sling.  If the sling becomes dirty please carefully spot clean using water and a soft cloth. Where spot cleaning is not possible please contact the sling library for further guidance.
