This funding reflects our commitment to reducing barriers to our profession in the UK, supporting aspiring IBCLCs, especially those who are not health professionals, and those from groups which are under-represented, thus encouraging greater diversity.

We will be looking for applicants who fulfil several criteria and our brief is to give preference to candidates working towards certification or re-certification.

We will also consider:

  • readiness to write about the experience of attending this event
  • involvement with LCGB, (or suggestions as to how you might become involved, and how much time you could commit)
  • evidence of offering support and benefit to breastfeeding mothers
  • whether this is offered on a voluntary basis
  • how the candidate will use the knowledge acquired at Conference

Eligibility requirements: these places are for those on the pathway to becoming IBCLCs, for re-registering IBCLCs and for breastfeeding supporters in special circumstances.
