ARE YOU HOMELESS, SOFA SURFING OR AT RISK?

Mothers and babies

Mothers and Babies thank you for their security

Centrepoint Mothers and Babies services are a lifeline for new mothers. They offer vital accommodation at one of the most challenging and transitional chapters in a woman’s life. The services also aim to empower women to feel strong in their new roles as mothers and enable them to access what they need to build a stable life for them and their babies.

In February we launched an appeal to raise money for mothers who are at risk of homelessness. Thanks to our incredible supporters, the appeal raised £104,868.89! The money will be spent offering more hardship funds to more vulnerable mothers and their babies, covering essentials such as buggies, baby clothes and nappies. It will also help towards childcare costs so some of these mothers can attend college or training.

"Every day we see the little ones grow and develop new skills. There are endless firsts – smiles, words, steps - and it’s wonderful to witness and help facilitate that treasured mother baby bond - as she does her best to map out a future for them both."
