Over the years Falkirk for Mums, Now Mums Today have reached out to mothers around central Scotland and beyond. Covering everything from what's going on locally, helping mothers, forums, health issues, support organisations to discounts in local shops and restaurants as well as a platform for companies to advertise their service or products.Mums Today will allow us to expand nationwide, our goal is to continue what we do successfully and to create a website & a better tomorrow for all mothers & families.
Mums Today began in 2011 when Ria and Andy's son was diagnosed with Tourette's Syndrome and she gave up work to support him. It started with a small Facebook support group supporting other parents going through similar things and grew and grew, before she knew it people were asking for much more information, including the best place to go for dinner that's child friendly, toddler groups, kids parties and much more.
Ria built a small website with the help of a neighbour to provide extra information and discounts while offering a support network across Falkirk and surrounding areas, people came to Ria for someone to talk to via social media and she shared and still shares many questions, mainly from Mums.
Through the community support they have given to others Ria was nominated to carry the Olympic Baton in 2014,
which was an opportunity of a life time.
At Christmas Ria and Andy work hard to help families in need, with the support from some local businesses and cash for kids they spread some Christmas spirit by delivering presents and food to local families with nothing.
won the Make A difference in the Community award with Central FM in 2013 and was nominated to open the new B & M store in Falkirk in 2014.
Facebook is used to support families and find people in need, some Mum's are fleeing domestic abuse and having to start again, Ria and Andy are there to help where they can with the help of others. They have also had a Dad from Glasgow apply for help previously and other areas.
Families will benefit from visiting our site to find local information for their area and other areas, to benefit from local discounts which is really important as families struggle to do things unless it's a good price and also by using the forum when looking to ask questions.
