Treasure Chest receives no statutory financial help from either the NHS or the council. We provide our workshops and peer support for free and all our members provide their time for free. We rely heavily on donations in order to both run our groups and train new peer supporters.

Where your donation will go
Most of the money raised by Treasure Chest is used to fund our training courses for local mothers who are passionate about breastfeeding, to become breastfeeding peer supporters. The courses are offered free to participants and where possible a creche is provided free of charge too. Current training costs Treasure Chest approximately £150-£200 for each peer supporter on the course.
Other money raised by Treasure Chest is used to cover the running costs of the organisation, e.g. leaflets and posters.
