ARM and the charities we support
For the financial year 2012/13, ARM is proud to
support two charities, which were chosen by all of us within
the company. Our charities are close to our hearts, and having a
limited number helps us to concentrate our efforts to do the best
we can for them.
The work that we do with these charities is based around
fundraising but stretches beyond financial donations. We lend our
support in other ways: by raising awareness of each charity
organisation, by gaining a real understanding of how the charities
work and why, and by giving our time, ideas, and some of the ARM
passion to these causes that we believe in.
The two charities ARM is proud to support
MAMA Academy is a not-for-profit organisation working towards
charitable status. We are delighted to be working alongside The
Royal College of Midwives and the midwives side of our site has RCM
The aim of MAMA Academy is to equip all expectant mums and
healthcare professionals with vital knowledge and education to give
every baby the best chance of arriving safely and healthily. We
want to help mums have healthy pregnancies and support midwives to
aid consistency of maternity care right across the UK.
Our team consists of various mums and healthcare professionals
whose passion is to educate to help see the numbers of baby loss
decline. If our information can help save just one baby then all
our hard work will be worthwhile.
