The Princess Project is a registered charity based in Maidstone, Kent, in the South East of England.
Our vision is to love, support, bless and encourage mothers
Becoming a mum is an amazing and awesome experience. It is all too easy, though, at this time of change and new beginnings, to feel lonely, isolated and inadequate. At the Princess Project we aim to give a helping hand and a listening ear to mothers who are in need of a little extra support. Although there may well be services and help available, sometimes new mums feel unable to access this for all sorts of reasons. We want to be able to help them to join in with any relevant activities wherever possible, and to provide one-to-one support, mentoring and friendship. We provide a holistic package of support to mothers (and their families), addressing their physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
What do we do?
The Princess Project run a number of projects to help support parents, from running drop-in coffee mornings, parenting courses and a befriending service for young mums, to providing gift boxes to new mothers and running Totcycle, a baby goods exchange. More information about all of these initiatives can be found by clicking on the relevant link to the left.
Why do we do it?
The motivation of the team of Princess Project volunteers is our Christian faith- we know that we have a God who loves and cares deeply about each one of us, and so we in turn want to reach out in love to those around us. All of our projects and initiatives are open to all mums, however, no matter what their beliefs may be.
"One thing I really like about everyone involved in the Princess Project is that I’m aware it's a Christian charity and everyone has their views and beliefs but this isn’t pushed onto people. I’m not very religious but I like how if and when I need to talk about God I can, but also I’m not preached to. That's what makes me feel the most comfortable."
