Thanks for visiting our team fundraising page.

The Big Push is a sponsored 5km buggy push walk to raise money to help combat loneliness among new parents. Everyone is welcome, bring along friends, family, buggies & scooters as we enjoy walking through Norton Common and the Letchworth Greenway on 25th September 2016.

Mental health issues affect at least 1 in 10 women during pregnancy or early parenthood. Men can also suffer from some level of anxiety, stress or depression relating to fatherhood.

Getting help early can make all the difference to recovery. Unfortunately, many parents suffer in silence and don’t get the support they need, often reaching crisis point. When a new mum or dad suffers from any form of mental health problems, the effects can be devastating for the whole family.

Funds raised will be used to develop perinatal mental health awareness workshops and a range of practical resources to be rolled out across the UK through our network of local branches. Our volunteers and practitioners will be trained so they have the knowledge and confidence to recognise the signs and symptoms of different mental health issues, and to signpost parents to specialist services.

Remember: Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never share them with anyone or send you unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. They'll make sure Gift Aid (an additional 25%) is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer, too. That means more money goes to the charity, faster, with JustGiving.
