The Support Groups database is continually being developed and refined. It now provides a comprehensive list of breastfeeding support groups and resources throughout the UK. The database can be accessed via the interactive map or by using the links to the left and is listed by region.

Please note that many groups will only be active during School Term time and almost never meet on Public Holidays. It is advisable to verify the details, using the contacts provided, prior to attending your first meeting. Breastfeeding Community will not be held liable for any errors or omissions that may occur.

We would like to include details of all community groups, hospital based groups, peer supporters, etc. The details of the four major Breastfeeding Support charities are on a separate page. The database will enable new mums, health professionals and peer supporters to quickly and easily access relevant local information and support via the interactive map of the UK.

Please click on your region to access lists of local information, or use the links to the left. This information needs to be kept up to date on a regular basis. We would like your help in making this a reality.
