Helping to get life off to a better start
'Compass Wellbeing Perinatal and Under 5s service receives Analeaf Award from PIPUK for positive practice'
Parent Infant Partnership (PIPUK) is a National charity working with a range of organisations who share the common vision of giving every baby the best possible start in life in the first 1001 days. They are committed to a preventative strategy to promote services providing early help to parents and infants.
Begin Before Birth - PIPUK Awards
To highlight National Infant Mental Health Awareness Week in June 2017 PIPUK encouraged nominations from services to showcase their work to demonstrate positive practice and evidence of improved outcomes for children and families. The theme for this year's Infant Mental Health Awareness was 'Begin Before Birth'. Services were asked to focus on their work in the antenatal period and demonstrate how they can use pregnancy as a window of change to provide infants with the best possible start in life.
We were delighted to receive the Analeaf Award for Best Service presented by the Rt Hon Tim Loughton MP, Co Chairman The All Party Parliamentary Group for Conception to Age 2. The award was in recognition of the services we provide to mothers, fathers and couples in the antenatal period which promote parental mental health and healthy parent infant attachment and for our integrated working with health colleagues.
