What is the Mothers’ Union?
We are a 4 million strong international Christian membership movement across 84 countries with a vision of a world where everyone prospers. Members have been supporting families and communities in the UK and worldwide since 1876.
Our focus is ‘Mothering’ in all its forms. It is a Union because it represents people (men and woman) who are united in advocating for and supporting families and those whose lives have met with adversity, regardless of faith or background.
Our work is threefold:
Programmes: designed to meet the needs of people within local communities - from entrepreneur training, health education, parenting and relationship education provision to teddies for children experiencing stress or trauma.
Policies: at international, national and at local level. Our policy work challenges root causes of injustice and works for better conditions in society for children and families.
Prayers: All of our work is underpinned by the Christian faith of our members.
