Doula Access Fund
Doula UK has a budget to cover expenses incurred by doulas who work for clients in their local community, who do not have the means to employ a doula. This might be because the family’s only income is from State benefits and the total income is less than £16,000 per year.
Getting help from the Access Fund
If you would like assistance from a birth or postnatal doula and feel you may be eligible to access this Fund, please accessfund [at] doula [dot] org [dot] uk (get in touch with our Doula Access Fund administrator, Sam Bounds by email) or telephone - 07800 645987 - and she will do her best to help you find a doula who is able to donate her time and assist you with any queries you may have. While we would love to be able to guarantee to find a doula for you, unfortunately it isn't always possible, but we will do our very best.
Supporting the Access Fund
Many doulas donate money to this Fund when they can. Clients who have appreciated the doula support they have received and would like to help others to have a similar service also donate to the Doula Access Fund and their contributions are always gratefully received.
If you would like to make a donation please either:
- send a cheque payable to ‘Doula UK’, with your name, address and telephone number clearly written on the reverse or on the enclosed documentation to: Doula UK Ltd, 116 Forest Road London E8 3BH.
- or donate online via this website.
Please ensure that you write that your donation is specifically for the ‘Doula Access Fund’ so that it will not get included with general running costs income.
