Established 30 years ago in the face of increasing pressure for mothers to return to work before either they or their children were ready Mothers at Home Matter aims remain the same today:

Being a stay at home mother is not properly valued in today’s society

One freedom the average mother no longer has is to choose to be at home to care for her children. Successive government policies have stacked the economic system against staying at home while a political and social elite have devalued the role and importance of care in the home.

Yet the reasons for making this choice – care of our children, our community, our elderly have not gone away. Rather the reverse. There is a critical need for ‘care’ as we see rises in loneliness, depression and mental illness

Mothers at Home Matter is such an important campaign for choice for mothers who want to look after their own children,” said Kathy McGuinness, founder of Local Mums Online. “So many mothers feel isolated and ignored by policy makers; this supportive network gives them a much needed voice.”
