Members throughout the Province are involved in projects to support family life. Some examples are featured on this page.

Away From It All

"Away From It All" Holidays are provided by most dioceses for families under stress and unable to fund their own holiday. Many dioceses have their own caravans funded by members, like this one owned by Mothers' Union Diocese of Worcester.

New Home packs

Members in Croydon prepare packs to give to families going through a difficult time. "New Home packs" are given to families who have had to leave their homes and start afresh because of violence and abuse from their partner. Many have to leave behind most of their possessions and set up home from scratch. The gift of a starter pack not only helps financially, but also conveys the message that someone cares. "Baby packs" are given to mothers in difficult circumstances and with few financial resources.
