welcome to the world

Welcome to the World Project

We were contacted by our friends at Brighter Futures for Children Care Leavers Team https://brighterfuturesforchildren.org and asked to provide a special gift for new mums in their care. We have just launched this project and would love your support

Care leavers can be very much on their own, with little family support and no-one to turn to other than the leaving care team. Growing up in care can be hard, as you miss out on many things, so when a care leaver becomes pregnant, it can be a very daunting time. The gift of a ‘Welcome to the World Hamper’ with beautiful and essential items which every new mum should have, will be a way of making them feel valued, and help prepare for and celebrate the birth of their child.

We are looking forward to putting these beautiful hampers together and giving them to young mums with love. You can be a part of this special project by making a donation www.justgiving.com/campaign/welcometotheworld or by purchasing an item from our Welcome to the World Wishlist https://www.thingstogetme.com/247732a916a7.

We are so grateful for any support and if you would like any further information, please contact rebecca@thecowshed.org.

Thank you.
