As we emerge from our months in lockdown, Caring Mums is excited to be able to finally connect with our mums in person. It has been a huge learning curve for all of us. We now need to ensure that these new learnings are not overlooked.

We were all so excited in January when Caring Mums was announced as a finalist in the HESTA Impact Awards for 2022. This is no mean feat when you consider that the awards recognise people working in health and community services across Australia who are committed to creating a better future. Being one of only four finalists (in their category) from organisations across Australia shows the enormous impact of our Caring Mums program.
