The ‘Breastfeeding Suffolk’ app is built for new mothers who are breastfeeding their newborn. The app features helpful tools that allow mothers to track feed times, record child development milestones and read daily information cards related to their breastfeeding cycle.
The app also contains important contact details for local organisations and links to other helpful information, to ensure new mothers are up to date and informed throughout the full breastfeeding period.
The Family Fund is the UK’s largest charity providing grants for families raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people.
Their purpose is to improve the lives of low-income families raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people.
Their mission is to provide items and services to all low-income families in the UK raising disabled or seriously ill children, that they could not otherwise afford or access, and that help improve their quality of life, realise their rights, and remove some of the barriers they face.
Their vision is that all families raising disabled or seriously ill children have the same choices, quality of life, opportunities and aspirations as other families.
