LCGB Founder’s Award remembers a small group of women who had the foresight of bringing the IBCLC qualification to the UK and recognise this specialised qualification and its relevance to enhancing breastfeeding support in this country. This award is to be a permanent way to honour the founding members of our organisation.
It is an annual award, of a set amount from LCGB and may be divided between more than one applicant. It is to be used to contribute to the purchase of relevant professional textbooks to enable study towards the IBLCE credential.
LCGB is keen to widen access to specialist support to communities and families where there are cultural, socio-economic, social or geographic barriers, by working to increase diversity amongst IBCLCs and under-represented groups, but not limited to, the protected characteristics outlined in the Equality Act 2010.
