Welcome to The Short Years Project

Our aim is to empower, support and inspire women and their families through their parenthood journey from pregnancy to school days and beyond.

Our key objectives are to:

• provide support and guidance for new mums and mums-to-be throughout their pregnancy and the postnatal period

• build a friendly community through our peer support network and enable mums to come together locally through our soon-to-be-launched Short Years Friendship Groups, no matter what stage of the parenting journey they are at

• offer inspiration for mums and mums-to-be to maintain good mental and physical health and wellbeing.

We focus on the motherhood experience as a whole, promoting choice and birth rights, providing a voice for mums, and supporting emotional wellbeing and self-care in pregnancy, birth and beyond. As babies grow into toddlers and pre-schoolers, we continue to provide continuity of the community into the school days so no-one is left feeling unsupported.

The Short Years Project is newly established and will grow in terms of what we will offer in the coming months. If you would like to be kept informed of new developments in the project, please email hello@theshortyearsproject.org.uk
