Cocoon Family support is a London based charity. We support those affected by postnatal depression, and mothers who are struggling to deal with difficult emotions before and after birth. We provide a safe and supportive environment where families can get together with others who may be feeling similar to themselves. We provide a range of services to aid and support recovery.

We are determined to provide a necessary and appropriate service previously not available for families in the London area. Our mission is to provide a safe and secure environment, that is easily accessible at all times. Where you can receive support services and meet other families experiencing the same illness as you.

Our mission is to provide a service that is underpinned by the following values and principles:

  • Equality
  • Respect
  • Empathy
  • Confidentiality
  • Valuing people and their individual needs.

We aim to provide a range of services for those affected by Postnatal Depression including one to one home visits either at Cocoon Family Support or in the comfort of your own home.

Drop-in groups

We aim to provide a number of drop-in groups across London and to provide self help material and support services at these drop-in groups.

Counselling

We will provide a counselling service available to support families experiencing and recovering from Postnatal Depression.

Support

We are a service designed to complement statutory services which provide support to those affected by Postnatal Depression.

Open to all

We will ensure that all services are available to all women and men regardless of age, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, physical abilities and religious beliefs.

Care and understanding

We aim to use our resources effectively to ensure families are receiving the best possible care.

We also will fight to help reduce the misunderstanding and stigma often attached to Postnatal Depression by taking part in positive media activities, by participating in training programmes and providing information aimed at Health and Social Care Professionals in London and surrounding areas.
