Peer Support Workers for Rotherham & Doncaster: Light Pre & Post natal support

Do you have lived experience of mental health difficulties around the time of having a baby?  We are seeking two new Perinatal Peer Support Workers to join our team, one focused on support in Rotherham and one on support in Doncaster.

This role will involve providing perinatal mental health peer support through offering structured one to one peer support as well as facilitation of Light Support Groups to ensure they run smoothly either virtually or in person (Covid-19 restrictions permitting).  As this role is peer support, you must have lived experience of mental health problems associated with pregnancy/childbirth, it is important that you feel well enough to be able to offer support to families who are struggling with such feelings now.  This role also involves working with and supervising volunteers to help us continue to offer dedicated services to women and their families, continuing to support each family effectively.
