‘Mary’s Child’ is charity that seeks to offer care and support to families and individuals in need in a variety of ways. The charity responds to requests from the local community, local council, statutory agencies, community organisations and individuals, to provide practical and pastoral support, and is committed to working in partnership with others. We can usually provide emergency food and toiletries and other essentials when families or individuals fall into difficulty, and we will then signpost to other charities and organisations and provide assistance to enable longer term solutions. We are able to offer some legal advice and advocacy on occasion.
‘Mary’s Child Peterborough’ is now forming through the C of E Churches of Stanground and Farcet, and is currently supporting those in the area who have been affected by the current difficult situation caused by Covid-19. We are delivering food parcels and ‘kindness bags’ and seeking to support those in need in a variety of ways!
