Happy Baby Community (HBC) is a community of support for women who are pregnant or with a young child. HBC is starting face to face meetings twice a week in Redhill to support the women in the area. The meetings will be a safe space for the mothers with babies and pregnant mums to access our services, which include perinatal support, children's activities (singing and storytelling), yoga and dance classes as well as practical support.

This particular role is to provide support to women.

Sometimes the women just need someone to talk to about their day, or their situation at home. It can be frustrating when the only people they come into contact with are from statutory services. Having someone who will listen is crucial to the women’s recovery and mental wellbeing.

Volunteers will also need to set up and tidy away after each session.

Free parking is available for volunteers.

Please note: all our volunteers are required to complete a Level 1 Safeguarding Training, attend information workshops and complete a DBS check.

Only female volunteers. 

 

What skills do I need?

We’re looking for volunteers who have a friendly, mature and empathetic manner towards others. You need to have good listening and verbal communication skills. We’re also looking for people who are non-judgemental and impartial in supporting all people, and who have the confidence to support vulnerable people.

Only female volunteers.
