At Mums In Need we aim at providing as many and as broad services as possible for our women
We are currently working on some exiting well-being projects which we will be able to share with you all. They include various online sessions either arranged by Mums In Need, in partnership with Mums In Need, or by someone vetted by our team, and which we are therefore able to recommend. Please see below for more information regarding various sessions, what they are about and how to attend. Due to COVID-19, they will all be online until further notice. We will add to this page on a continuous basis.
Some of these sessions are only for our service users, while some are open to the public and are sessions which we recommend.
For resources which might be useful, especially during COVID-19, please see Resources.
For more information about our services, please see What We Do for more information.
If you or someone you know have experienced domestic abuse, please see Get Support for more information. We are here.
Stella Eden - Making Isolation Less Isolating
Virtual Afternoon tea at the Sofa- making isolation less isolating
Stella is an author, speaker and the founder of Stella’s Open Road Trip & events -helping women affected by domestic abuse to reclaim their power- their inner self. After 18 years of emotional, psychological, physical and economic abuse she found the strength and courage to leave.
Every Friday 3pm -3:40pm, Stella invites woman to join her in an afternoon tea from the comfort of your own home. It takes place on zoom and is a women only space for women affected by domestic abuse. Joining the Virtual Afternoon tea at the Sofa are different guest speakers (one new each week!) which provides tips, guidance, help and support.
Our founder and CEO, Laura Riley has attended several of these session and really recommend them! "Having done a well-being session for our Mins back in 2017, I was super exited about this new project! With acupuncturist and crystal therapist Michelle as guest speaker, we spoke about the power of pressure points and acupuncture in relieving stress, and how these techniques can reduce anxiety and help those who struggle to sleep."

Due to the the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to offer face-to-face contact for the foreseeable future, and we will now be supporting our service users remotely. We are working towards allocating our resources so that we can support everyone as best we can. For the time being, we want to reassure you that we are still here. Our phone line is still open and we will still be checking our inbox. Don't hesitate to contact us if you need anything at all. Please take this offer up if you need to touch base during this period of social distancing, it's going to be particularly difficult for those of us who already feel isolated.
