Businesses in the breastfeeding welcome scheme

Want to join the breastfeeding welcome scheme?

With little or no cost to you, joining this scheme could:

  • Make a real improvement to customer service
  • Attract a new customer base
  • Improve your image and generate publicity
  • Help to improve community spirit

Once you have adopted this scheme, prominently displaying the logo within your establishment will indicate to a breastfeeding mother that:

  • Mothers will be made welcome; thus giving them the confidence to feed without fear of interruption or criticism.
  • Your staff will be positive, supportive, non judgemental and familiar with the guidelines of the scheme. Training will be offered to give knowledge and information to staff i.e. the health benefits and the way your premises can support a breastfeeding mother.
  • Your premises will provide an acceptable standard of cleanliness, warmth and comfort and there will be some clean, dry, basic facilities for changing a baby.
  • If a member of the public complains about a mother feeding her baby in your premises, the complainant rather than the mother will be offered alternative seating.
  • Your premises will comply with the Equality Act 2010
