Doula UK is the leading organisation for doulas in the UK, with a network of around 700 member doulas. Founded in 2001 as a not-for-profit organisation, Doula UK is now working towards becoming a registered charity.
Our aims are: to promote life-changing support for women in the childbearing year, regardless of circumstance; to nurture the doula community; protecting parents and health professionals; and, to advocate for better support for UK families.
In March 2013 Doula UK held its first annual conference. It has become evident that going forward Doula UK may wish to explore commercial partnerships with exhibitors/ sponsors/donors for this and other future events, as well as through advertising on our owned channels, to enable us to deliver the best possible service to our members.
Relationships with commercial (profit making) organisations are of great potential to a non-profit making organisation like Doula UK, but need to be managed carefully. Doula UK needs to avoid the appearance of impropriety or bias when working with commercial organisations.
