Our grant supported the running costs of a Mother and Toddler Group
Of the 33 who attended regularly 45% were BME. One of these regular BME attendees was Samina, a local mum with triplets who was finding it difficult to meet new people having just recently moved to the city and then falling pregnant. She documents that after being told about the group by her health visitor: “the group has actually stopped [her] going stir crazy…[she] cannot emphasise how important the play group has become in [her] daily life. It has broken up the monotony of just being with [her] children 24/7 and has basically allowed her to have a normal ‘ADULT’ conversation once a week”.
