Vulnerable mothers in Sutherland Shire will benefit from a $10,000 donation to 3Bridges Community Early Years Support Service.

The funds, donated by Olsens Funerals, will help staff launch a new project called the Circle Of Impact.

The program, which receives no external funding, provides critical and cost effective early intervention by supporting at-risk mothers who may be experiencing post-natal depression or anxiety.

It will also help mothers with multiple or premature babies, those will a disability or health issue, those from Defence force families, and will assist new arrivals to the area.

Women will volunteer and train with midwives and social workers to provide weekly home visits to mothers in need.
