Breast Buddies Angus is part of Voluntary Action Angus and one of our main aims is to increase breastfeeding rates in Angus by providing timely, evidence based and empathetic support to breastfeeding families. Breast Buddies volunteers are mothers that have breastfed their own babies and have also received breastfeeding peer support training.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer you can email our Breast Buddies Coordinator:
