LLL is a non-profit, non-sectarian, international organisation providing accurate information and support to ALL families - breastfeeding, chestfeeding, pumping and supplementing.
We believe that mothering through breastfeeding is the most natural and effective way of understanding and satisfying the needs of the baby. We provide mother to mother, parent to parent breastfeeding support at meet-ups across Great Britain.
Our trained breastfeeding counsellors (known as LLL Leaders), who have all breastfed their own babies, work as volunteers to provide a network of support options including local calls, a national Helpline, emails and social media. This, combined with opportunities for those at meetings to receive encouragement from their peers, other breastfeeding mothers and parents, means we can support all families at every stage of their breastfeeding relationship, in ways that work best for them.
We are committed to serving everyone – mothers, parents, families – regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, sex, national origin, ancestry, age, marital status, physical or mental ability, socio-economic status, political views, gender identity, sexual orientation, family structure, cultural values and beliefs.
