Over the past year alone, Mum for Mum’s 160 volunteers supported over 250 new mothers experiencing difficulties whilst transitioning to parenting. The number of new parents seeking our service continues to grow rapidly, as does our volunteer base. In their critical support role, Mum for Mum volunteers too often witness the devastation caused by domestic and family violence. As an organisation we continue to train our volunteers to cope with these situations. We have seen that it is possible to make a meaningful difference when knowledge, strong leadership and resources are brought together. As a community we have the capacity to move from passive bystanders to collaborative changemakers.
Mum for Mum is honoured to facilitate this panel together with Jewish community agencies, who will share the supports they offer, in the collective effort to make a difference.
