Sheffield Breastfeeding Friendly Award


The Breastfeeding Friendly Award is a citywide scheme, recognising public places that offer a good level of facilities and support for breastfeeding mothers and their families. Even though mums have a legal right to breastfeed in public places, the Award offers reassurance that the venue supports breastfeeding and will make their experience a comfortable one.

A full list of breastfeeding friendly venues can be found on the Breastfeeding in Sheffield website and at the bottom of this page.

There is an active Breastfeeding in Sheffield Facebook page which offers information on local breastfeeding related news & events. The website and Facebook pages give details of how to find local breastfeeding support groups which are run by fully trained Peer Support Workers, usually at local Children's Centres.

Anyone can 'post' questions to the Breastfeeding in Sheffield Facebook page, from their own Facebook page and Breastfeeding in Sheffield can also be contacted by emailing

What is the Breastfeeding Friendly Award?

We have worked hard in Sheffield to help mums and their families to feel confident and comfortable when breastfeeding in public.

The Breastfeeding Friendly Award was developed to help you to identify public places and workplaces in the city that offer a good level of facilities and support for you when you are breastfeeding.

Who has this award?

The list of Breastfeeding Friendly venues includes leisure centres, cafes, restaurants, libraries and play areas which all support breastfeeding in Sheffield. The venues usually display a window sticker showing the Breastfeeding Friendly sign. Have a look at the list of Sheffield's Breastfeeding Friendly Venues

Would you like your venue to be Breastfeeding Friendly?

Have a look at the Breastfeeding Friendly checklist to see whether your venue would be eligible for the Breastfeeding Friendly Award.

We would be happy to consider any business, community venue or service for the award, if it is somewhere that could be used by breastfeeding mums. If you are unsure what is involved or would like to discuss it further, please contact us at Breastfeeding in Sheffield.
