The Princess Project

About:

The Princess Project is a Christian charity with a vision to love, support and encourage mothers. They provide a holistic package of support for mums in need of a helping hand, by addressing their physical, emotional and spiritual needs. In 2018 the Princess Project started to work with mums in the Medway towns, initially through their Mum2Mum befriending service which matches mums ages 16-30 in need of support with trained volunteer befrienders.

Becoming a mum is an amazing and awesome experience. It is all too easy, though, at this time of change and new beginnings, to feel lonely, isolated and inadequate. At the Princess Project they aim to give a helping hand and a listening ear to mothers who are in need of a little extra support. Although there may well be services and help available, sometimes new mums feel unable to access this for all sorts of reasons. They want to be able to help them to join in with any relevant activities wherever possible, and to provide one-to-one support, mentoring and friendship. They provide a holistic package of support to mothers (and their families), addressing their physical, emotional and spiritual needs.

What do they do?

The Princess Project run a number of projects to help support parents, from  running drop-in coffee mornings, parenting courses and a befriending service for young mums, to providing gift boxes to new mothers and running Totcycle, a baby goods exchange. More information about all of these initiatives can be found on their website below.

Why do they do it?

The motivation of the team of Princess Project volunteers is their Christian faith- they know that we have a God who loves and cares deeply about each one of us, and so they in turn want to reach out in love to those around them. All of their projects and initiatives are open to all mums, however, no matter what their beliefs may be. 

"One thing I really like about everyone involved in the Princess Project is that I’m aware it's a Christian charity and everyone has their views and beliefs but this isn’t pushed onto people. I’m not very religious but I like how if and when I need to talk about God I can, but also I’m not preached to. That's what makes me feel the most comfortable."
