The project is funded by Erasmus+, the EU’s programme for education, training, youth and sport, and involves partners in Denmark, France and Portugal. As this is all about co-creation, we have practiced what we preach and have been talking to people working in welfare from the beginning and will continue to gather feedback along the way. We hope that with our help, welfare organisations across Europe will start putting these methods into action. Everyone should be involved together as a team from the beginning and all the way through.

Ifeed was launched in August 2018 to coincide with World Breastfeeding week. In the first week it had 800 views and was shared by organisations supporting mothers and babies across the UK and globally.
