The money we raise here will help us to provide virtual support through pregnancy and the fourth trimester via peer facilitated online groups - hopefully moving to face to face when possible! Parents deserve evidence based information shared at an appropriate time and in a respectful and relevant way, and this is currently harder to find and access. Those with newborns also need a support network made up of those at a similar point in their lives, and the option to join a baby group, cafe or face to face activity is currently unavailable. We believe that a well led session can help build connections and create a network of parents to reduce isolation and loneliness.
We are fundraising for our new technology costs, to train up empathetic and well informed volunteers, to spread the word to a range of communities and to cover our insurance.
