Meet Sue.Willoughby who heads up our work with young families and expectant mums.
Along with her team, Sue supports families and expectant mums, being a mother-figure to those whose own mums are far away.
Sue says "I first started helping at Sanctus over three years ago when I heard about the charity through my eldest son. I love supporting parents and their small children.Together with others, I am a befriender,visiting some families at home, and I also enjoy leading the Stay and Play drop in group on Wednesday mornings. I help with phone calls, try and explain letters and sign post as well as doing lots of listening and occasionally being asked to pray with them.
With helpers, I also coordinate baby equipment that is donated and then delivered to mums to be. This year we’ve helped 21 babies so far! I see all this as a privilege and a way of being God’s hands and feet"
