AIMS was founded in 1960 working to improve the way that women are cared for in pregnancy, birth and in the postnatal period. Since then we have helped many thousands of women - hence our 'strapline':

We are a volunteer run charity with no premises. We are supported by one part time employee, but our work is mainly carried out by volunteers. AIMS does not accept any advertising, 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!
We are challenging people to raise £60 to celebrate AIMS 60th Anniversary.
In 2020 AIMS will have been supporting maternity service users and campaigning for better births for all for 60 years. To help us continue and build on this vital work, we are hoping that you will join us in our challenge to “Raise £60 for @60yearsofAIMS” (though if you raise £600 we won’t complain!)
We want to publicise the best ideas so please tell us what you have done and if possible send a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like to contact us to discuss your fundraising idea, please email email@example.com. We look forward to hearing from you!
Giving up a little of your spare time to raise funds for AIMS can be really rewarding. So, however you want to help, we hope that the following ideas will give you inspiration! If you need more information or help please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The one idea on this list which has the potential to raise hundreds of pounds is being sponsored - in particular to do something VERY daring like a parachute jump, or something VERY energetic like a cycle ride or a marathon. If you don't fancy it yourself, maybe another member of your family or a good friend would do it for you! AIMS will help with your publicity.
