PANDAS Foundation

This charity works nationally to increase and improve the range of support available to women suffering from pre- and post-natal depression.  It has developed a network of peer support groups across the UK, and is continually helping new groups to set up and become established.  PANDAS also offers resources and information, including a useful website, telephone helpline, as well as online support groups and forums.  The charity estimates it supports more than 5,000 women each year, and numbers are increasing.

The Allen Lane Foundation awarded £6,000 in October 2016 towards the charity’s general running costs.
