Does anyone know about the Hackney roll out of the Finnish style Baby Boxes?

Back in March it was in the Hackney Citizen (www.hackneycitizen.co.uk/2017/03/27/finnish-baby-box-scheme-launch-hackney/) and a few other places. Apparently the Welcome Hackney Babies initiative is launching and everyone in Hackney can get a free Baby Box, but after the article I can't find anything else on it (Welcome Hackney Babies or the Baby Box Company).

Our GP and Midwife haven't heard of it either! Have any Hackney mumsnet folk heard anything?

Thanks in advance.Will share anything we find out too.

Just in case anyone else was wondering, I've been told this by the Baby Box company: "we don’t have a set date yet for our Hackney programme but it is likely to be this autumn"

I read that the lullaby trust has told the council they are dangerous.
Wtf.
They've been used in Finland for 80 years.
Now council are doing more testing/research
