Community Bridges and Espacio Mama
Three illustrations for a Community Bridges blogpost and newsletter, interviewing Espacio Mama, a social support group led by and for the community of Spanish-speaking mums in Southwark, London - also part of the Parents and Communities Together project.
We spoke with mums Danna and Claudia to hear about their personal journeys to Espacio Mama and what this group means to them. It was so nice to hear about all of the amazing support and opportunities offered at Espacio Mama and how being part of this group makes them feel empowered.
