Mothers’ Union Dublin & Glendalough have announced details of their chosen project for 2020 to 2022. Over the coming three years Mothers’ Union branches throughout the dioceses will be supporting young families through the charity, Home Start.

MU in Dublin & Glendalough adopts a project to support families for each triennium. During this time they focus on one individual charity. Details of their latest project were unveiled at their MU council meeting in Wesley House recently.

Home Start is a family support agency which operates in Mulhuddart, Blanchardstown. It is a voluntary organisation which offers regular support, friendship and practical help to families with young children, in their own homes helping to prevent family crisis and breakdown.

MU branches will be asked to support Home Start by compiling Home Start Welcome Packs as gifts to mothers with children under the age of five who are experiencing stress. These families will be accessing parenting courses through the Home Start premises on Blakestown Road.
