The charity is aiming to reach out to families of multiples to assure them that they are not alone and to offer emotional and practical help through their service Helping Hands.
Helping Hands can provide families advice tailored to their individual needs on topics such as infant sleep, behaviour, infant feeding, establishing a routine and maternal mental health.
Commenting on the Helping Hands service, CEO at Tamba, Keith Reed, said: “Helping Hands is a unique service that has been running for 4 years. Helping Hands can serve as a lifeline for families of multiples in crisis when otherwise they’d have nowhere else to turn.
“We want to work with healthcare professionals to ensure that families with twins, triplets and more that are in urgent need get the support they desperately need.”
During the first six months of 2018, Tamba’s Helping Hands service provided over 224 hours of support to 16 families.
Parents reported that they felt less stressed after receiving just one visit from a Helping Hands Support Practitioner.
Tamba’s Helping Hands service is in conjunction with Norland College and Agency, with 62 qualified Norland volunteers providing support to families.
