Our 'Family Support - Group Helper' volunteer role is diverse and flexible, and will suit a range of personal skills and preferences. Our volunteers can:
- Support families during Child Health Clinic sessions, creating a welcoming, friendly and safe environment for families and actively promote key public health messages (resources & appropriate training given where required);
- Be a peer befriender, supporting parents/carers to access local services;
- Help run a Ready Steady Mums group (social walking group);
- Support the delivery of our courses and workshops to parents (Five to Thrive, School Readiness, Family Fun, Food & Fitness, Baby Talk, and Toddler Talk).
Our volunteer role is usually available across eight areas within Hampshire, however due to current Covid-19 restrictions we are not currently delivering our service in a face-to-face capacity, and Child Health Clinics are not currently running.
However we are providing online support to families and all of our workshops and courses listed above are being delivered via Zoom and we welcome volunteers to support with this digital delivery. Once Covid-19 restrictions lift we will be looking to return to working in the community.
The role is available during the day, Monday to Friday, 9.00am to 5.00pm only.
