Find out about our peer support programmes offering help to new mums in the first 1,000 days, including pilot programme Parents in Mind.
Over the past four years, we’ve been developing our peer support services, expanding on the knowledge and experience we’ve gained over many years with our breastfeeding peer support. We aim to increase our reach to even more families over their first 1,000 days.
We have trained nearly 250 peer supporters across the country, who have helped over 550 mums
Part of this has been to deliver a pilot programme, Parents in Mind, which gives women experiencing mental health issues a friendly, safe space to meet and talk through their concerns.
We also received funding to scale up our Birth and Beyond Community Supporter Programme. This offers support to new and expectant mums who might be experiencing day-to-day challenges, feeling isolated or lacking confidence.
We have trained nearly 250 peer supporters across the country, who have helped over 550 mums through groups and one-to-one support.
We’re really pleased that these programmes have been given more funding, so we’re planning to scale them up to support even more families in their first 1,000 days. Find out more below.
