Together Newcastle About us How we help What we do Get Involved Contact Us Skill Sharing The Mothers Union members have a wealth of experience knowledge and skills and we are working with them and Changing Lives who work with vulnerable people and families who are experiencing homelessness, addiction and a range of problems. Together we are matching the skills of Mother Union members and the needs of Changing Lives service users. For example improving independent living skills cookery, budgetting reading and numerecy skills. Mothrs Union Branches are also responding to other practical needs for example gathering pieces of furniture and equipment for setting up home, being part of a "buddying" support scheme when homeless people move into idependent living. Conversations and sharing of experiences provide the basis for this on going work and where all involved are changed through the newly formed relationships and encounters.
