Breastfeeding Buddy Service - Dudley Healthy Champions

Breastfeeding Buddy Service

If you are a volunteer Buddy, you will notice some changes happening over the next few months, as we support the breastfeeding service to move forward to charity status.

What will this mean to you as a Buddy?

Home Start Dudley has recently appointed a Buddy Volunteer Co-ordinator. She will be keen to meet with you all soon, as she will be organising the day-to-day running of the Buddies, ensuring that groups run well and families are able to access the support they need in the community. Public Health will continue to support you as a volunteer while this process moves forward.

Home Start has also appointed an Organisational Development Worker, who will be taking the Volunteer Buddy Service and the Buddy Se rvice Helpline forward to charity status. This will help to save these much n eeded and valued services for mums in Dudley.

We would like to celebrate the hard work you have done up to now and encourage you to get on board with this new stage of the service, as it will be from your passion, and that of the Moms you support, that the service will grow.
