The Mothers Empowered program is an all-inclusive Mother’s group run by Mothers to help and support each other.  Mothers Empowered meets  fortnightly and provides an opportunity for women to connect, share, laugh and learn together.  Facilitated by the Coordinator of the Good Beginnings Home Based Family Support Program, the group is run by mothers for mothers.  This group promotes community connectedness, friendship and learning opportunities such as nutritional advice and demonstrations, physical activity, gardening skills and much more.

Activities that have been undertaken range from Sushi Making, No Bake Cooking Day, Bonsai Workshop, Craft day, How to grow a herb garden, Card making, Tie Dye Day, Scrapbooking, Pamper days all the way to Cosmetic demonstrations.

If you would like to meet other women and make new friends in a child-friendly environment then the Mothers Empowered Group could be for you.  It is optional to bring your children along!
