Mum’s the Word Campaign

Mum’s the Word is a campaign that demonstrates how corporate boys’ clubs, such as the National Rugby League (NRL), are committing negligent, unlawful, and discriminatory acts against mothers and women alike. We created this campaign to get support to apply pressure to ensure organizations fulfill their duty of care, moral obligations, and are directed to comply with the law to protect the welfare of our children.

We pride ourselves on helping many people within our community. Here’s what they have to say about working with us at MDS247.

“I recently employed M & D Services to waterblast the outside of my home. Dan did a wonderful job. He was thorough, taking the time to remove screens and helped with the moving of heavy objects to get underneath-not just going around them.  He did such a good job that I asked him to come back the next day to maintain the garden which was also done quickly and neatly. Very reasonably priced. Was on time and good communication. I am happy to recommend M & D services”. 


“It is a pleasure to work with M&D Services, they are prompt, professional and deliver good value for money and are always willing to attend at short notice”.

“I was extremely happy with the water blasting and cleaning. It was noticed and complemented by all staff and parents”.
