Thank you to The Victorian Women’s Benevolent Trust for awarding Caring Mums, a program of NCJWA Vic, with a grant to support the work in our catchment areas and to promote our Caring Mums Extended Reach initiative.
Caring Mums Extended Reach is designed to provide emotional support for new mums around Victoria, outside of our catchment areas. Trained volunteers are paired with mothers for a period of 4 months and connecting via FaceTime or Zoom.
The grant was awarded as part of the Joan Hudson Sub Fund of the Victorian Women’s Benevolent Trust, providing positive and effective community supports for mothers and their children.
“The Victorian Women’s Trust is inspired by the vision of full Gender Equality – a world where women and girls take up all of life’s opportunities with respect, safety and dignity. Established in 1985 in recognition of women’s role in shaping Victoria, the Victorian Women’s Trust (VWT) has positioned itself as one of Australia’s foremost women’s organisations.”
If you are a mum, or know of a mum, who would like to be part of Caring Mums please contact the team on firstname.lastname@example.org
