South London project will help young new mums find work

HELPING WOMEN: Fiona Small founder of the Young Mums Support Network

A NEW project to assist young women who find themselves out of employment after giving birth to children, will be launched this week in Wandsworth, south London.

Fiona Small founder of the Young Mums Support Network is passionate about preparing and equipping mothers for work by providing work experience opportunities with corporate companies which providing opportunities that low income mothers would not have access to.

Small has partnered with Wandsworth Children's services to develop a family resilience project starting today (Sept 20).

This volunteering project, titled Wandsworth Parents Times, will focus the young mothers in developing their very own newsletter. The mothers will learn about story writing, communication, media and marketing plus become self-made journalist.

The unemployment rate, while trending down, is still high among ethnic minorities and the UK government’s agenda to reform the welfare state means mothers who get state benefit have become quite venerable. With universal credit preparing to launch nationally across the country there has been a rise in homelessness and an increase in child and food poverty.

It is these statistics that cause Small to launch the project to assist young mums. As founder of Young Mum’s Support Network and Director of Fiona Small Consultancy, the mother of two is carving her own lane as a specialist and expert in her field.

She has strong views about providing practical support for mothers and as a result has established herself as experienced practitioner who has a wealth of high level corporate connections and a portfolio that has allowed her to become an expert in assisting young mothers back into employment.

Small has worked with NHS England, Barclays Capital, Natwest Bank and the large Housing Association such as L&Q and Metropolitan. The family resilience project with Wandsworth Children's Services will run until November.
