Welcome to the UK’s third Maternity Project of Sanctuary

The Happy Baby Community supports mothers and their babies in London who have been forced to flee violence or trafficking.
Their incredible work means more families have a safe, welcoming and supportive space. In recognition of this, they are now the UK’s third ever Maternity Project of Sanctuary.
Our maternity project is a national network of refugee charities, people with lived experience of the asylum system, midwives, healthworkers, educators and researchers. Together we are working to raise awareness within maternity services of the issues facing refugee families, ensuring more people get the support they need in the journey from pregnancy to parenthood.
Our Maternity Project of Sanctuary Award recognises and celebrates the organisations who go above and beyond to create welcome.
