AIMS has no premises and our work is mainly carried out by volunteers, although we regularly pay for some things to be done for us such as printing, typesetting and mailing publications. So, although we keep our cost very low, we do rely on our membership subscriptions, publication sales, events and donations to cover all we do. Every penny counts - thank you for your support!
If you would like to post a donation to us, the address is:
AIMS Treasurer, Rough Lea, Hook Heath Rd, Woking, Surrey, GU22 0DP
Please make cheques payable to The Association for Improvements in the Maternity Services.
