Saving lives, supporting families

Our Vision, Mission, Values & Plans

Our Vision

Tamba wants all families with twins, triplets or more to be happy and healthy.

Our Mission

Tamba is the only UK-wide charity working to improve the lives of twins, triplets or more, and their families. We do this through campaigning to improve health, wellbeing and developmental outcomes; funding clinical research to reduce the risks faced before, during and after birth; and by providing practical support and information for all families, including those in crisis.

Our Plans

The charity’s priorities are set by our stakeholders during our strategic planning process.  These are outlined in a detailed strategic plan, which determines what we do and how staff, trustees and our supporters measure our progress.  Apart from continuing to deliver our existing services, during the coming year we also intend to:

  • Implement a clinical research programme aimed at reducing still births, neonatal deaths and the additional risks faced by mother and babies during pregnancy and birth.

  • Identify existing medical practice in maternity units and undertake a programme to raise awareness of and embed the latest clinical guidelines.

  • Produce additional resources for partners, friends and family to be better placed to support mother, babies and themselves.

  • Create additional resources for families with specific needs including those for families with interuterine growth restriction, triplets and higher multiples, same sex couples, single parents, and for those who have English as a second language.

There are additional plans to provide more support for families with older multiples covering the challenges many families face during the journey from pregnancy through to adulthood.

Our Values

All involved with Tamba commit to the following values.  We seek to be; mutually supportive to our families and colleagues, trustworthy and transparent in our actions and decision making, celebrate individuality and diversity, commit to understanding the challenges we face through research and knowledge sharing, and consistent and proactive in our work.
