Women with maternal mental health issues in North Cumbria currently have very limited support services.

The rural location of the area makes accessing services difficult. The grant will provide local, practical peer-led support for women, and will pay for a range of activities and staff and crèche facilities.

The project will enable isolated and unsupported women to get appropriate support.
