The Devon Positive about Breastfeeding Scheme is available to all Devon businesses, venues or organisations. These businesses can be public facing (e.g. cafes) or non-public facing and by signing up they are giving a message to their community, including their staff, that they are positive about breastfeeding. Businesses can choose to sign up individually or across a whole group of premises.
By signing up you promise to:
- provide a positive attitude towards breastfeeding
- ensure all employees and volunteers are aware of the scheme and read the Staff and volunteers guidance
- display the Devon Positive about Breastfeeding certificate of commitment in your premises (if appropriate)
- make sure all staff are aware of the law in relation to mothers breastfeeding in public and recognise that a mother is legally entitled to breast or bottle feed her baby in public, and in neither case should be asked to stop.
We’ll email you with confirmation that you have joined the scheme and will attach the Devon Positive about Breastfeeding certificate of commitment for you to display.
