Blackpool Council Help & Support Services In Partnership with Anya – Video Testimonial.

Vicki Morgan, Service Manager for Help & Support Services at Blackpool Council, joins a webinar on the transformative impact of Anya on Family Hubs and Start for Life objectives. 🤝

Written words from Blackpool Council’s Service Manager.

“Anya really supports the low literacy levels of Blackpool’s community. It provides information in various formats, allowing users to choose the area of support they need, as well as the format. Parents are spending more time reading credible, evidence-based information – which is a win! Our HCPs love the 3D breastfeeding animations and say they are well-received by our parental users – providing another way to learn. Consultants traditionally just use knitted boobs to show latching positions!” 

Vicki Morgan, Blackpool Council’s Service Manager.
