Backhaus & Co


Welcome to our sling library session. These sessions allow you to come and get some advice from our experienced consultants and peer supporters, and also to access our sling and carrier hire service.

The library is held at the Backhaus & Co at Fargo Village in the city centre. It is easily accessible via public transport and there is also lots of local parking (See here for details)

On arrival, please come into the cafe and find our banner where you can sign in. Refreshments will be available from Backhaus and we will take your name and discuss what help you want. There is no entry charge, however if you bring your own sling for help and don’t plan to hire there is a £3 charge, £1.50 for members of Coventry Slings. People are seen on a first come first served basis, however we may try to group people together who have similar needs. You will usually get around 10-15 minutes with a consultant or peer supporter, who can advise you on options if you feel you need a longer session.

Hires are £10 for two weeks or £15 for four, and they are half price for members. We also offer our Newborn Hire Scheme for babies under 8 weeks old. We accept cash and all major cards. If you are hiring we ask that you bring proof of address with you but we do not take deposits.

You can view our inventory before hand to get an idea of what is available to try and you are welcome to bring your own sling or carrier for help making it work for you.

All children are welcome however you may wish to bring an activity for older ones. The venue is fully accessible for pushcairs and wheelchairs.
