What MAF does  

Hall Green Mums and Families (MAF) is facilitated by a group of mums with children at Hall Green Schools who believe that even though we all come from diverse cultures and backgrounds we should join together in activities so we can find out what we all have in common.  MAF is an initiative to help us all ‘learn about each other, from each other’, and have fun whilst we’re doing it!

Community Cohesion
MAF is an organisation that helps develop good links between the diverse cultural, religious and racial groups that make up the local Hall Green Community.  The emphasis is on arranging activities at which mums and families can have fun learning about each other, from each other.  Gaining knowledge in this way, families can learn to understand and respect people who are different from themselves, and help their children to understand the benefits to be gained from being able to respect and relate to people from other cultures, races and religions.

A Message to Parents and Carers
You might sometimes ask yourselves what you really want for your children.  Success and happiness are probably high up on the list.  In today's multicultural Britain - and no more so than in Birmingham- part of growing up and succeeding undoubtedly involves the abilty to understand people from different backgrounds.  Having the knowledge and confidence to respect those from different races, religions and cultures from our own is a vital life skill.
One of the best ways to help our children become aware of these things is to make sure that we ourselves understand other people, and respect the differences between each other.  MAF is an initiative to help us all learn about each other, from each other – and have fun whilst we’re doing it.

Who should come along

Anyone who is responsible for caring for a child in the Hall Green area.  We hold two types of events:

Our 'Mothers' events are particularly designed for mothers and other female carers (carers, aunties, grannies) of children of primary school age.

Our 'Families' events are for all the family, and are centred on activities that the whole family can enjoy.

The reason why we encourage women only to attend some of our events is that we are mindful of the religious and cultural conventions that mean some women may feel uncomfortable attending events where men to whom they are not related are present.

Hall Green MAF has an equal opportunities policy and operates all of its activities in full compliance with its duties under the Equality Act 2010.
