As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic and people not getting out and meeting others in a similar situation, Westbank and Budleigh Hub are starting up a new weekly outdoor parent/carer support group. The group aims to bring together anyone providing care for under 5s to develop a  social session in the garden at Budeigh Hub. We hope that the group will be able to offer peer support to one another, and if possible, we hope to benefit from some regular additional support from local health service providers.

Qualities and skills required

  • Able to encourage and facilitate a social group for parents /carers
  • Caring and empathetic
  • Patient and understanding
  • Reliable
  • Able to offer a flexible, reactive approach
  • Desirable but not essential, previous experience of working with young children and their carers

Volunteers will receive

  • Induction training
  • Specific training according to their role
  • A point of contact for support and or guidance
  • Social opportunities
  • Agreed out of pocket expenses reimbursed
