Galvani Charitable Foundation

We were asked by the Trustees of the Galvani Charitable Foundation to complete an audit around the issue of peri-natal mental health; to help them to decide where to allocate a significant future grant. We undertook a literature review to determine current knowledge and information gaps and a service review to understand existing national and local service provision. We complemented desk research with face to face and telephone interviews with charities, academics, key opinion leaders and people directly affected by the issue. Our final report provided a summary of existing research, service, campaign and advocacy activity alongside our recommendations for where the Galvani Charitable Foundation involvement would achieve the best outcomes for women and their babies.

“The scoping review undertaken by Amy for the Galvani Charitable Foundation has been an extremely useful planning tool. It has provided us with a thorough understanding of what activity is happening where, and it allows us to determine where our future work can have the greatest impact. The breadth and depth of the work that Amy carried out exceeded our expectations.”
