VOLUNTEER WITH US
As a charitable organisation, we rely on volunteers to ensure we can deliver much needed support to women and people with perinatal mental health problems in our community.
Although we have two recruitment periods per year (spring and autumn), we welcome enquiries about volunteering at any time, so if you'd like to have a chat about getting involved, please get in touch! You can email or phone during our volunteer support office hours (Wed 9.30am-2.30pm).
*Recruitment is currently OPEN until 19th of October 2022 for this intake of befrienders & the 18th of November 2022 for Group Helpers*
All our volunteers have access to induction and role-specific training, as well as ongoing support. Safeguarding training is mandatory, as well as a PVG check. We cover expenses for travel for volunteering purposes.
VOLUNTEER MUM BEFRIENDER ROLE
One to one emotional and practical support
Our volunteer mum befrienders play a very important role in supporting women who are having a difficult time during pregnancy or with a baby under 2 years old.
Are you a mum yourself (it doesn't matter how grown up your children are)?
Are you able to regularly give an hour or two of your time?
Do you have a caring, empathetic nature and are you a good listener?
Are you non judgmental and reliable?
This rewarding role could be the one for you.
VOLUNTEER GROUP HELPER
Group Helpers are key to supporting women and people to feel comfortable at our perinatal support groups.
They help us set up and run our groups, welcome parents in, help settle people into the group, chatting with group members, make teas & coffee, and play with the little ones.
