We have BIG NEWS to share!

OBS Lottery Annoucement

OBS has been given a major award from the The National Lottery Community Fund.

The 5-year grant will secure funding for our new drop-in sessions in Barton and Didcot and help us launch a brand-new drop-in outside of Oxford from April next year. We will use the fund to widen access to our support, whoever you are and however you are feeding your baby. Thanks to Lottery players, we’ll be able to support even more families, but we also need to keep fundraising hard for our other four Oxford drop-in sessions and all our other work.

If, like the Lottery, you believe in OBS, please consider making even a small monthly donation.

What we do

Oxfordshire Breastfeeding Support provides local breastfeeding support in the community in weekly drop-ins in and around Oxford, facilitated by experienced IBCLCs and breastfeeding support workers, and supported by specially trained volunteer peer supporters.

Come for help with specific issues or just to hang out with other breastfeeding mothers. Drop-ins are free to attend and partners and other supporters are welcome. You can read about what to expect and how we've helped local families. Hope to see you soon!
