Government funding for the Australian Breastfeeding Association’s 24 hour telephone counselling service runs out in June and the association says there is no process for it to reapply for the $1 million a year grant it relies on to survive.
“If we don’t have clarity regarding funding by end April will be have to start making plans to close the service including making six people redundant,” Ms Nalor says.
The federal government needs to know how important the ABA's assistance is to parents in providing advice and support for feeding babies.
