The Big Bake

THE BIG BAKE on a festive baking background

Dust off your aprons and pick up your wooden spoons – we have a very exciting opportunity for you this festive season and we'd love you to be part of it.

Get together with friends or colleagues this December and hold an awareness-raising cake sale, a mince pie bake off competition, a wintery coffee morning or festive afternoon tea in aid of Action on Postpartum Psychosis.

Your support could help give a cake and a cuppa to a mum at an APP peer support café group.

We'll provide you with a FREE pack full of fundraising tips, ideas, APP goodies and even some of our favourite festive recipes!

Any funds you raise will make a huge difference to our work, plus if you pay them in via our Big Give Christmas Challenge page between 12 noon on 29th November and 12 noon on 6th December, everything you raise will be DOUBLED thanks to match funding from The Big Give. Double the donation, double the impact.

Your fundraising could help us increase our offer of peer support which makes such a difference to so many women and their families.

Our recent survey of those who have accessed this service found that 100% of respondents said they felt less isolated after finding us, 93% feel more informed about PP, and 82% feel less negative about their experience of PP. 1 in 3 women with PP who responded said APP peer support had been lifesaving.

We know our peer support service is vital, life changing and in some cases life-saving - giving women and family members with experience of PP the opportunity to meet and talk with others.

'Speaking with women who truly understand the impact PP has on your whole life has given me hope when I had none' - APP Peer Support beneficiary

But it's not just about raising funds - we hope these events will also help raise awareness of postpartum psychosis and APP.
