Mums Enterprise Roadshow, the UK’s only free, child-friendly, flexible work and business show, designed to connect women with businesses and services which specialise in offering advice and support available working and entreprenurial mums, today announced a new ongoing partnership with The PANDAS Foundation UK.
Launched in 2016 the Mums Enterprise Roadshow is touring the UK and wants to use its platform and reach of thousands of parents to help raise awareness of the support and advice on offer to all as well as help the charity raise funds and recruit volunteers. Those who register to attend one of the free events can choose to make a donation at the time of registering and PANDAS will be on hand with a stand at every event.
PANDAS (Pre and Postnatal Depression Advice and Support), set up in 2011, works to offer help, support and guidance to mums experiencing a perinatal mental illness. They also provide support to family members, carers, friends and employers as to how they can support someone who is suffering. The partnership will be an ongoing one with PANDAS cited as Mums Enterprise Roadshow charity partner of choice.
This week marks pre and postnatal depression awareness week #PNDAW17. This year between 10 and 15% of women will suffer from post natal depression, last year this equated to between 39,523 and 82,998. Mums Enterprise Roadshow and PANDAS decided this was the right time to announce their partnership.
