Tamba is the Twins and Multiple Births Association which is a charity that was set up in 1978 by parents of twins, triplets and higher multiples and interested professionals. It is the only UK wide organisation that directly helps parents and professionals to meet the unique challenges that multiple birth families face.
Tamba undertakes research, campaigns and provides information and support to over 20,000 members and supporters each year. Their work is funded through membership fees, fundraising activities and the delivery of their services.
The families within Tamba’s network agree that they wouldn’t change having their twins, triplets or more for anything else in the world. Nevertheless, being a parent of multiples can be challenging. Here are a few examples of the types of problems that families with multiple births encounter;
- Twins are 4 times more likely to die during pregnancy compared to a single baby and 7 times more likely to die shortly after birth
- Expectant parents of multiples receive less help preparing for the potentially challenging journey ahead
- Families are more likely to suffer a relationship breakdown or serious health problems during the early years
The good news is that Tamba are aware of these issues and are there to help provide support and information via a range of tools. As well as the above, becoming a member of Tamba means you will also receive a wide range of benefits including:
- Quarterly copies of the ever popular members magazine Multiple Matters
- Access to Tamba’s Pushchair & Buggy, which includes reviews of approximately 50 buggies
- Discounts with over 100 companies (of which Clarks is one)
- Exclusive invitations to regular events such as family days, conferences and regular classes and more
Clarks teamed up with Tamba in 1994 to offer Tamba members a 10% discount on all Kids shoes up to the age of 16. But that’s not all… over the past few years Clarks have started to hold special events for Tamba members (that see a bigger discount on offer). These special discount events that happen twice a year entitle Tamba members to a 20% off discount on all full price footwear for both Kids and Adults (this includes accessories too).
