Baby Lifeline & The Independent
Baby Lifeline is proud to have joined forces with the Independent Newspaper to campaign for changes to help improve maternity safety. Together, we are calling on the government to reinstate the Maternity Safety Training Fund with immediate effect. When the £8.1m fund was first released in 2016 it enabled over 30,000 maternity healthcare professionals to receive vital training but, despite positive evaluation, it was not continued beyond its first year. Not only must the fund be reintroduced, but it should be repeated annually to provide an ongoing resource for NHS trusts.
In March 2020, Baby Lifeline and a delegation of experts took the campaign to Downing Street to hand deliver a letter to the Prime Minister calling for the reinstatement of the fund.
