Domestic Abuse law to change following Mothers’ Union campaign

Mothers’ Union, which represents over four million members worldwide, has welcomed today’s announcement by Prime Minister Theresa May that current legislation governing domestic abuse in England and Wales is to be overhauled. 

In November, Mothers’ Union submitted a petition signed by 4,500 of its members and supporters to Downing Street, calling for changes to the statutory Child Maintenance Service, so that survivors of domestic abuse are not forced to re-engage with their former partner, often the perpetrator of the violence against them. 


Hazel Treadgold

Mothers’ Union received the sad news just before Christmas of the passing of Hazel Treadgold who was Central President of our organisation from 1983 – 1988. She passed away peacefully at home on Monday 19th December 2016, surrounded by her loving family. We extend our prayerful support and heartfelt sympathies to her son Marcus, daughter Joanna and their families as they mourn Hazel’s passing. 


Christmas in South Sudan

A South Sudanese woman nurses her child in Lilogo 2 refugee camp where she is being helped through a Mothers' Union funded programme. MU has been supporting relief efforts since the conflict broke out in December 2013. Now, violence has risen to unprecedented scales, looting has become the norm and thousands are displaced, hopeless and abandoned. Through the continued presence of the Church in the camp Mothers’ Union has provided for 15,000 people to receive basic food supplies.
