Our members are not all mothers, or even all women.
Diocese of Carlisle
What is the Carlisle diocese of the Mothers Union?
We are a small part of a worldwide organisation of over 4 million people with a vision for a world where everyone prospers. We actively pursue this vision through prayer and action, seeking to bring about justice, challenge prejudice and advocate change.
You can find out where we have branches or how to join on the National Website.
Every Mothers Union member is important.
As a charity we have a board of Trustees who oversee the activities, ensuring they fit with our aims, support the branches to develop and undertake appropriate safeguarding etc and ensure our finances are managed appropriately

Working for families in Cumbria for 130 years since 1890
Initially the Mothers’ Union was an organisation for mothers. Supporting them as they brought up their children and managed their homes and family life. The Mothers’ Union has always focused on supporting those with most need. Nowadays you don’t have to be a mum or even a woman, you can be a man or LGBTQ+ and be a member.
We still focus the support we give and our advocacy on women and on parents whose lives have met with adversity.
1890 - Simple but hopeful beginnings
2022 - Current Hope and activity
2023 - Transforming for the Future!
We want the Mothers’ Union to be active for another 130 years in Cumbria, we need you to support us! You can join a branch, an online group or just support as an individual diocesan member.
