Guest Campaigns: October 2019
Here at MNHQ, we think it makes sense to use the not-inconsiderable might of the Mumsnet collective for the greater good. That's why we regularly exchange links and public support with charities and pressure groups in areas Mumsnetters are interested in, such as special needs provision, child poverty, childcare, parenting, breastfeeding, maternity care and relationship support.
Fight for Sight – Join the fight for sight
There are currently over 25,000 children affected by sight loss in the UK and Fight for Sight is at a crucial point in their fight against sight loss.
With more support, the charity can continue to improve lives today and transform them tomorrow with crucial research that is making breakthroughs in treatments.

Menopause Support – #MakeMenopauseMatter
Every woman will experience menopause yet we learn nothing about it in school, our GP’s do not receive mandatory menopause education and there is no formal menopause guidance in the workplace. Women and men are affected during menopause whether at home or at work and women are losing personal health, careers and relationships as a result of this lack of education.
Please join Menopause Support in calling for better menopause education for GP’s and guidance in the workplace. Visit their website for more information.
Rett UK – Rett Syndrome Global Awareness Month
Rett syndrome is a rare neurological disorder affecting mainly females and very few males. It is present from conception and usually remains undetected until major regression occurs at around one year of age, when children may lose acquired skills and become withdrawn.
For over 30 years Rett UK services, has empowered families, building their emotional resilience, facilitating access to high quality information, advice and support that is not only vital, but life-changing.
