Mums Cottage is a charitable community service that bases its foundation on empowering and improving the potential in the lives of women and dependent children.
We walk with women and dependent children as they take the first step to transition from difficult times to a brighter future.
Mums Cottage affirms the sacredness of each person and respects their dignity. We offer an invitation for each person to realise their full potential.
Welcome to WA Mums Cottage…
Guests are invited to drop in whenever there is a need for a cuppa, friendly chat and some company. WA Mums Cottage is a place of respite from whatever challenges they face in their lives. A place of renewal and of resource.
The cottage is not a residential refuge – however, we are able to refer to refuges in Mandurah, Perth, Rockingham or Bunbury.
Children are welcome at the cottage with their parent or guardian. There is a beautiful garden with play equipment and toys. A room is also available for breastfeeding, changing nappies and for mothers to have a break.
If you would like to volunteer to help out at either Mums Cottage or the Cafe Op Shop, please get in touch.
Thanks for your support…
To everyone who has supported the concept of WA Mums Cottage from the beginning and in thanksgiving for all they have contributed!!
You have made a huge difference to the lives of women and dependent children in the Mandurah community and I thank you for it. We have been recognised at the Australia Day honours with a nomination in the the group category.
This recognition is much appreciated as is the need that is being fulfilled.
