We support new mothers and families who are unable to meet the financial and practical needs of looking after a newborn.
As a volunteer-led project we provide much needed essentials and equipment, funded through donations and fundraising, to mothers, including teenage mums, people seeking asylum and women fleeing domestic abuse and trafficking.
Working closely with midwives, health visitors and other professional groups we provide support where it’s needed. We currently run 38 centres but there is a need for us to expand to new locations.
Persimmon’s top prize will enable us to open 10 new centres across the UK so we can support more mothers at their time of need.
