Who Are Breastfeeding Together?

Breastfeeding Together is a not for profit organisation which was set up in 2014 by experienced Breastfeeding Peer Supporters with many years of experience of supporting mothers both in the antenatal and postnatal period.

Breastfeeding is always at the heart of our organisation, we:

  • Promote and protect breastfeeding at all times
  • Offer caring and non-judgemental support
  • Provide independent, relevant and evidence-based information which is free from commercial interest and bias.

Funding Breastfeeding Together

We are a small local charity and a not-for-profit organisation, we are commissioned by Wigan Council in 2015 to provide a Breastfeeding Peer Support Service across Wigan Borough.

Breastfeeding Together has been supporting families in Wigan since 2014. We provide independent information and support to families, we do not accept sponsorship from commercial companies linked to infant feeding.

Volunteers are central to the success of our organisation and we are fortunate to have such passionate and willing supporters in the area in order to help Breastfeeding Together thrive.

All staff and volunteers have completed in depth training to ensure their knowledge base and skills are up to date, accurate and relevant for their role. All peer supporters are mothers who have breastfed and can offer mother to mother support.

We’re always on the lookout for new members. If you’d like to become a volunteer for Breastfeeding Together please contact us for more information, or read about our training course.
