To be truly non-profit -- as in able to take tax deductible donations -- you need to talk to a lawyer. There are many requirements that must be met in order to be given non-profit status. This is to prevent fraud.

If you are looking to do something locally it might be worth contacting sure start if you have one in your area, or talking to the health visitors. If you want to do something on a bigger scale, maybe start a website and then see what kind of response you get.
