A place to help mums, run by mums, with support from mums!

The Motherhub is currently a large disused storage room at The Nightingale pub, Huddersfield. A group of mums have a combined dream to convert this into a space to help mums with any problems or issues they may be coping with from PND to financial, from career help to a rant over a cuppa! If you're just having one of those days where it all seems a bit too much, The Motherhub will offer a bit of support from another mum who knows exactly what it feels like!

We're aware that there's a lot of dads out there that could do with some help too so we will make sure that dads get their own times to be able to come & share their problems & use the facilities at the Motherhub.

A place to help mums, run by mums, with support from mums!

The Motherhub is currently a large disused storage room at The Nightingale pub, Huddersfield. A group of mums have a combined dream to convert this into a space to help mums with any problems or issues they may be coping with from PND to financial, from career help to a rant over a cuppa! If you're just having one of those days where it all seems a bit too much, The Motherhub will offer a bit of support from another mum who knows exactly what it feels like!

We're aware that there's a lot of dads out there that could do with some help too so we will make sure that dads get their own times to be able to come & share their problems & use the facilities at the Motherhub.

Alongside the physical Motherhub there will be a website with a forum for mums to seek advice, have a natter or rant until they feel better. The website address is www.motherhub.org

The Motherhub committee have BIG plans for this concept. We need approx £10,000 to refurbish the room & any help with this would be much appreciated. If anyone knows of any businesses willing to get involved either by donating time, equipment, hardware or money then please let us know. The completed room will have a small kitchen area for making drinks & warming bottles/baby food. there will be a comfy couch area for chats, laughs & tears. Internet access, a phone line & computers will be installed so that mums can update their CV's, do any coursework, research job opportunities, promote their businesses etc. There will be a small soft play area to distract children while mums do their thing & also a sensory baby area with blankets & bean bags for those of us with smaller babies. 'The Bag' that has been so successful for swapping clothes at the current mum & baby meet ups will become 'The Rail'.

The Motherhub will be the new venue for the mum & baby meet ups & will also be available for groups such as the sling library, complimentary therapists & other charity or community groups to use as a meeting venue.

Developments will also be taking place outside as the current pub garage becomes a pram store with video security camera's linking it to the Motherhub with an intercom system!

We need as much help as possible to make this dream a reality. Any fundraising ideas would be appreciated.
