Your donation helps to reduce healthcare inequalities. Every year in the UK hundreds of thousands of babies don’t get the start they need in life. The first years of life are the biggest opportunity to make a difference to people's future.
The recent independent report by Graham Allen MP has shown that every pound spent on Early Intervention for children and families can deliver £10 of savings.
It’s in these earliest years that Best Beginnings makes a proven difference. Our first major project ‘From Bump to Breastfeeding’ has been shown to increase breastfeeding rates at six weeks. Breastfeeding is a powerful way to improve child health, reduce infant mortality
Our next project Small Wonders will focus on the tiniest and most vulnerable babies. Small Wonders will give the parents of premature and sick babies the knowledge and confidence they need to play a pivotal role in their babies’ care in ways that improve health outcomes.
We still need funds to ensure that the 80,000 premature and sick babies born in the UK each year get a better start in life:
£25 can pay for an hour’s professional editing to turn our footage into a set of powerful films that really help parents make a difference to their babies’ health.
£5 can provide five parents of vulnerable babies with the vital Small Wonders DVD.
