Breastfeeding: Made for your baby

Breastfeeding is brilliant!

There are so many benefits to breastfeeding, many of which are included on this page. However, there are also plenty of myths and misconceptions about what it's like in practice. Not everyone can breastfeed, and it can certainly be challenging.

Our new campaign sets out to give an honest, upfront account from Suffolk mums who have breastfeed, and what it was like for them. There's also lots of helpful advice and  support available.

Suicide Prevention Strategy


This is a new strategy bringing together a range of Suffolk organisations with a focus on reducing suicides.

An estimated 60 people die by suicide in Suffolk every year, with each death representing a tragic human cost with a devastating impact on family, friends, work colleagues and many others.
