Meet the BOOBS team
We’ve been growing our close knit BOOBS team since 2015 and have an amazing group working both behind the scenes and on ‘the front line’ delivering our services to mums. Meet them below!
Kim - founder
Kim started the B.O.O.B.S project in 2014 after researching into breastfeeding rates in Salford. She is passionate about helping mums achieve their breastfeeding goals. Kim does strategic work such as sitting on the 'breastfeeding task & finish' group and speaking at conferences but also helps run the BF cafes and our antenatal sessions. You can contact Kim on firstname.lastname@example.org
Kerry - Project Admin & Lead peer supporter
Kerry joined us as a volunteer in 2018 and is a trained ABM peer supporter with lots of experience supporting women to breastfeed. Kerry is now working as our Project Administrator supporting Rachel and leading the Peer Support volunteers. Kerry is mum to Caitlyn, 8 and Annabelle, 6.
Rachel - Project Manager
Rachel joined the BOOBS project in 2018 as our project manager. Rachel looks after the BOOBS Approved campaign for both Salford and Bury and working with our partner businesses and venues as well as organising our BOOBS Cafe events. Rachel is mum to Isaac, aged 6. Rachel is our go-to for any referrals into our Peer support service - call 07426835535 or email email@example.com
Our BOOBS peer support volunteers are the glue that holds our project together – we simply couldn’t support mums without them! Our volunteers are mums from both Salford and Bury who have all completed training through the Association of Breastfeeding Mothers or Breastfeeding Together – and crucially have all successfully breastfed their children, from between 4 months and nearly 3 years! This means they have a variety of experiences to be able to effectively give breastfeeding support. Our peer supporters can meet women 1:1 at our BOOBS venues, chat to them online or on the telephone, or provide a home visit (depending on the age of the baby.) They also support us through our monthly cafe events and stalls within the community.
We are always on the lookout for new volunteers – if you’re a breastfeeding mum in Salford or Bury borough, or have previously breastfed your children and have some time to spare, please email Kim or Rachel and we’ll send you a sign up form!
