Who are Geordie Mums?
Geordie Mums is a group in Newcastle for women with a learning disability.
We are all mums. Some of us have our children living with us, some do not.
We are a friendly group who support and look out for each other.
What we do
Some of us do training – we teach midwives and social workers about what its like to be a mum with learning disabilities. We want to make it better for other mums.
- We have an advocate we can talk to, she helps us with problems.
- We do activities and crafts
- We get people to come to talk to us about things we want to know.
When do we meet?
Geordie Mums meet on the first Wednesday of the month from 11am-2pm.
It’s a friendly and relaxed group where mums with a learning disability can meet together as friends to talk about the things that are affecting them and get advice.
The group is supported by Project Workers Donna Johnston and Joanna Routledge.
