About the project

Mums Supporting Mums began in 2011 as a partnership project to develop peer support to mums living in rural areas.

A lot has happened since then

    • The mums groups have gone on to develop in their own ways.
    • We piloted baby massage groups as another way to reach new mums and put them in touch with other mums.
    • We have worked with young parents to find out what types of support works for them.
    • People in many other places have used the resources developed by the project to set up peer support groups in their areas.
    • We now have a new project exploring peer support for people in parenting roles

Material and updates are available on the Mums Supporting Mums project website

Things to read

We have produced a series of Hints and Tips to help more people get started in other areas – these cover topics such as setting up a buggy group, finding funds and using social media; all are available to download below.

We have also published the Mums Mental Health and Wellbeing report which explains how this project links into other developments.
