A Social Enterprise
Islandmums is a social enterprise – a business with heart. We are focused on being a force for positive social change whilst also being financially profitable.
Originally known as Guernseymums.gg, the business was set up in 2009 by mums Milly, Jane and Sarah to be a one-stop shop for finding information about parenting, child care services and activities in Guernsey.
Sasha Kazantseva-Miller, a mum of three and serial entrepreneur, bought the business in 2015 and has developed the Family Club service, working with local businesses to negotiate offers and special promotions for members. Businesses enjoy the ability to reach a targeted family demographic and parents receive a membership card and voucher book that give them amazing savings.
It is our hope that being an Islandmums member encourages parents to try new activities, restaurants, home improvements and retailers through the reduced prices and meet family-focused local organisations. Our Family Club businesses are usually small local companies who can support you in your family life teaching children diverse skills from golf to street dancing, and helping parents with anything from health consultations and fitness to home improvements.
10 Year Anniversary
2019 is Islandmum’s 10 year anniversary and our sights are set on having a bigger impact on the community in which we are raising our children. We are launching our own series of events, designed to create deeper community, support and empower mothers and provide resources to raise healthy, happy kids.
Studies show that the early stages of life are crucial to the healthy development of an individual. Parenting then, is a vital and often undervalued role. Our events and the information we distribute are all designed to inform and support parents.
It takes an island to raise a child and Islandmums is a supportive community to benefit our parents, our children and the future generations of Guernsey.
