Mothers for Mothers are delighted to have been awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service in our 40th year. This prestigious award is the highest recognition possible for VCSE groups in the UK. It recognises the dedication, commitment and passion of all of the women with a lived experience of maternal mental illness, who have generously given their time, skills and compassion to support others. We are so proud that our wonderful team have been honoured in this way. It is very emotional to think about all the families that they have supported over 40 years. The women who we walk alongside on their journey to recovery are the inspiration for all that we do. This honours their bravery.


Mothers for Mothers is delighted to have been selected to take part in this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Our garden is specially designed garden created to raise awareness about maternal mental illness. It is inspired by the theme of hope and reassurance and, as well as raising awareness around maternal mental illness, the project is aimed at drawing attention to the need for improved funding to support maternal mental health.

Award winning

Sarah and Maria were so proud to accept the Maternal Mental Health Alliance Perinatal Peer Support award on behalf of Mothers for Mothers. This honours the trail blazing women of lived experience who had a vision to start a women led peer support group back in 1981. The hard work of our staff and volunteer team is possible due to the support of our trustees and funders.
There are many fantastic perinatal peer support organisations across the UK and we are able to share learning and experiences to improve our services for the benefit of families, we all thank the Maternal Mental Health Alliance for making this possible.
