Neighbourhood Doulas is a small organisation, we rely on external funding to run our services. We do not receive any money from the government and most of our funding comes from individuals and grant giving bodies. However, there are a limited number of sources we can approach for funding.

How you can help

Make a Donation

Even the smallest donation from an individual can make a significant difference to the women and babies we support:

£600 can provide full doula support for one at-risk pregnant client. This includes antenatal, labour/birth, discharge and postnatal support with a culturally safe and trauma informed doula team.

£10 pays for phone credit so that an ND client can call us to the birth and stay in touch during the last days of pregnancy and first days after they have had the baby.

£15 pays for a cab to take an ND client in labour to get to the local hospital.

£20 pays for a bag of groceries for an ND client who has just given birth.

£25 pays for Hospital bag necessities for an ND client to take with them to hospital – such as nappies, baby hats, nightgown.
