The Sheffield Breastfeeding Friendly Award recognises public places and workplaces which offer a good level of facilities and support for breastfeeding mothers and their families. Find out about the Award and the list of Breastfeeding Award Venues.
We are encouraging more women in the city to take up breastfeeding, and continue breastfeeding for longer. We also aim to make Sheffield a more ‘breastfeeding friendly city’. We have invested £0.5million in a new breastfeeding peer support service which is now being delivered from each of the 31 Childrens Centres where local women are supporting other local women to breastfeed.
In 2010 we will launch a Breastfeeding Friendly Public Place and Workplace Award Scheme to help achieve our breastfeeding friendly city objective.
