At Amma, we understand the power of community
We’ve all heard the expression “It takes a village”. But in today’s world, it can be difficult for any new parent to find a network of support.
For those seeking sanctuary in Scotland — who are navigating the challenges of a new country and motherhood alone — that village can feel completely out of reach.
The parents we support are so strong, but we can do so much more together.
From October 11-18, we’re participating in
The Big Give’s Women and Girls Match Fund.
During this campaign, we’re aiming to raise an ambitious £10,000 in just one week.
But to make it happen, we need you! Every pound you donate this week will be doubled to create twice the impact.
Between clients, staff and volunteers, the Amma Family brings together a wealth of love, resilience, care, and mutual inspiration.
When new parents are supported, they thrive
Our clients receive individual support throughout their pregnancy, birth and the first weeks of new parenthood. Last year, 96% of our companionship clients said they felt better able to meet their baby's needs.
In our Amma community, parents feel held
Within Amma Family, peers support each other. By coming to weekly gatherings, mothers benefit from a safe space to share, learn, and build connections. Amma clients often go on to build lasting friendships outwith our events - proving how strong they are together.
Our mutually supportive volunteer community
Our volunteers work in teams, so they are never working alone. The Amma community holds a wealth of knowledge, skills and experience, and we all turn to each other for advice and to share our experiences. As a result, we all grow together.
Our community doesn't stop there. We wouldn't be able to do any of our work without your support. Will you donate today?
