Audit workshop

We are pleased to re-introduce Audit Workshops due to requests from infant feeding leads. Depending on demand for this training, further workshops will be considered in the future.

The Audit Workshop is designed to support infant feeding leads and other key workers to audit the care their service provides in relation to infant feeding and relationship building against the Baby Friendly Initiative standards. All aspects of the auditing process are considered, and the Baby Friendly audit tools are used to enable participants to explore issues of sampling, interviewing, scoring, presentation and interpretation of results, and action planning to improve care and maintain progress.

Participants at the audit workshops are expected to have attended the UNICEF UK Baby Friendly Initiative course in Breastfeeding and Relationship Building and have a good understanding of how to provide effective care and support for breastfeeding mothers, but are not expected to have significant experience of audit.

Open courses

We are currently unable to conduct face-to-face training due to the ongoing effects of the pandemic and will be running our courses virtually. Please see our courses page for important information on virtual training, including technological requirements, course availability and booking. For any queries, please contact the Baby Friendly office at

E-learning available

For those who prefer to learn at their own pace and in their own environment, an e-learning package to support with audit has been developed.
