What we do

Mothers’ Union is specially concerned with families and family life; whether that is campaigning for flexible working arrangements, supporting parents of children staying in hospital or arranging holidays for families under stress, our vision is of a world where God’s love is shown through loving, respectful, and flourishing relationships.
