To be eligible for a nomination individuals must be an ABM Breastfeeding Counsellor, BfN Breastfeeding Supporter, LLL Leader or NCT Breastfeeding Counsellor. The support they offer must be free of charge to families (although nominees themselves may be paid) and they must support families in their local area.
In November 2010, our chair Pam Lacey passed away. Pam had touched the lives of countless families but also encouraged many other women to train and go on to support others with her infectious humour, wisdom and determination.
Pam’s Prize was set up in her memory. It is a way to give recognition to the way volunteer breastfeeding counsellors make a difference to so many families in their time of need. We wanted to celebrate those who go the extra mile as Pam did.
