Train to become a volunteer Peer Supporter!

Would you like to join the Treasure Chest team and help support mums to meet their breastfeeding goals?


Katherine, one of our volunteer peer supporters, said "It's so good to be able to support mums in making informed choices that are right for them.  And there's no feeling like seeing a family leave the group looking happier than when they came in!"


We're really excited to be able to announce details of our next peer supporter training course:
