Fiona holding a basket of coloured wools


I’m a totally different person to who I was 5 years ago. I now have a voice, healthier friendships, and a small business.

Caring for a family of four with complex needs means I can’t work full time. For eight years, I felt isolated and supported others more than I accepted support for myself.
The Self-Reliant Group, ‘5 Mummies Make’, have removed that feeling of isolation and lack of purpose.

It’s just a crochet hook and a bit of wool, but there’s something productive and beautiful at the end of it. Selling my products was never the big goal, however, I’ve had sales in Australia and America and it is a phenomenal feeling to think of what we have achieved together.
