In this case study we detail Leeds Community Healthcare Health Visiting Service’s journey to earning the prestigious Baby Friendly Achieving Sustainability (Gold) Award and their efforts to support multi-generational breastfeeding
The UNICEF UK Baby Friendly Achieving Sustainability (Gold) Award celebrates excellent and sustained practice in the support of infant feeding and parent-infant relationships. Download the case study on this page to learn more about the difference going for Gold has made to the experiences of babies, their mothers and families under Leeds Community Healthcare Visiting Service’s care.
By helping us focus on leadership, the Achieving Sustainability standards enabled us to get a commitment to Baby Friendly where we hadn’t before – not just from the health visiting service but also across the children’s centre and maternity services, and the local council. It’s been really valuable to have an engaged leadership team to give strategic support to implementing the Baby Friendly standards.
