United Nations praise for council

Posted onPosted on 22nd Jun

A United Nations’ agency has highlighted Nottinghamshire County Council’s help for new parents and their babies.

The council’s children’s centre service received the Gold Award as part of UNICEF’s Baby Friendly Initiative. Assessing the children’s centre service for the award, Anne Woods, UNICEF deputy programme director, praised the services on offer.

The children’s centre service supports expectant and new parents in Nottinghamshire through virtual and in-person groups that offer emotional and practical help on different parental topics. The groups are run by volunteers.

The UNICEF scheme provides UK local authorities and healthcare providers with a road map to ensure public services give new families the best possible support, including with infant feeding and developing loving relationships.
