Motherwell Cheshire has been empowering women on their mothering journey since 2015.
Led by Kate Blakemore, a passionate women’s health advocate and counsellor, Motherwell is run by women, for women. Our specialist team are experts in mental health.
Our mission? To bridge the gap in support services for women’s wellbeing across Cheshire.
Working within the community, we are active in some of Cheshire’s most deprived areas. Women come to us for a range of reasons, via referrals from social care, health visitors, midwives and GPs.
Through our inclusive approach we build resilience. We help mums deal with the past through counselling, and the present through support work. We help women look to the future though intergenerational mentoring.
This method has seen even the most disengaged mums become confident and self-reliant again.
Our fundraising is crucial in enabling us to make a difference to women’s lives. To gain a sense of belonging and purpose.
Motherwell’s service is built on women supporting women. Volunteers are trained to become successful mentors or peer support champions. A business model that has proved highly sustainable.
In just 5 years, we have grown from a team of 3 to 7 employed staff, with 20 volunteers.
Our long-term vision, is to open a Women’s Centre in Crewe and Winsford.
A place of comfort and encouragement, where every mum can truly receive the support she needs.
