Local Projects

How does Mothers' Union meet the needs of our local communities?

 

  • Members volunteer at food banks, toddler groups and with visits to the elderly. 
  • We work in prisons where members are volunteers in prison chaplaincy, mother & baby units, visitors centres and teach cooking skills.
  • We work with teenage mums and support women's refuges.
  • We provide emergency toiletry packs for local hospitals  and support premature baby units and dementia wards.
  • We give families in need a holiday they would never  otherwise afford at  one of our caravans in Filey. In 2018 over 80 adults and 80 children had a week's holiday at the coast.
  • We support people on a low income and have produced a very popular  “Food on a Budget” recipe book.
  • We campaign  at national and international level for  the rights of women, children and families. 
  • We fundraise for overseas projects teaching literacy, parenting skills, health and hygiene.
