Community Organisation Award: LGBT


The Queer Parenting Partnership was launched in 2020, in response to the shocking lack of birth and parenting support services for LGBTQ+ people in the UK. Kay and Kim connected online and combined their knowledge around midwifery and childcare to create a complete antenatal and postnatal education programme. Their values are of equality, fairness, power, love, community, laughter and fun. The Queer Parenting Partnership aims to build a community for queer families to learn and grow together and celebrate their presence in the world. They also provide support in the following areas: Infant feeding, Babywearing, Sleep, Toddler support, Baby massage Hypnobirthing, Pregnancy movement and exercise, and LGBTQ+ Competency training. In addition, The Queer Parenting Partnership has facilitated training for NHS trusts on how to support LGBTQ+ birthing people. This amazing initiative has opened up many channels of support for LGBTQ+ families.
