Building A Vibrant Community
If you’ve ever been a new parent, you will know how vital it is to build a community of people who understand how you are feeling. Parent and toddler groups and coffee dates with friends can be a lifeline in a hectic existence as a parent.
For parents who struggle with mental health issues, these groups can be very overwhelming and can add to the feeling of isolation and loneliness rather than provide a source of support.
We Are Pangs volunteers are planning parent groups, coffee mornings, buggy walks and other drop-in social activities specifically geared towards parents who are struggling with their mental health. These groups will provide a much needed safe space where parents don’t have to put a brave face on and can build their own support network.
We are raising money to book venues, pay for insurance and provide refreshments at these activities. Every penny will help us to create a vibrant community of parents and volunteers who can look after and support one another throughout the parenting journey.
