Christmas Giving – Sunderland Young Mums

6th Dec 2016
Christmas Giving – Sunderland Young Mums

As it is the time for giving, this December we are giving back to a cause which is close to our hearts.

Since opening in Sunderland this year, we have worked with the Young Mums Unit in Hendon. This is a specialist unit catering for girls under school leaving age that are pregnant and cannot remain in school. This unit enables the girls to continue with their education, in a supportive and nurturing environment.

Their Mission Statement:

“At the Young Mums Unit we are committed to supporting young pregnant girls and mothers until they cease statutory full time education. By offering advice and an appropriate individual education programme, each young person can be empowered to pursue their chosen career path and adopt a positive attitude towards motherhood.”

Funding is very limited and basics such as hats, gloves, socks, blankets, nappies, books etc for babies can be a struggle to subsidise.

Over the next few weeks we will be doing a range of fundraising events within each of our nurseries to raise funds for this important and worthy cause.

We are also making gift packs for the new Mums and babies, so if any parents would like to donate any of the above items, these will be much appreciated.

We would be very grateful for any support, if you would like to help please contact your local nursery or email info@kids1st.net
