Volunteer with us
Mum and Baby Community Volunteer
The Mums and Baby Community at the Helen Bamber Foundation meets every Monday in Newington Green. The community supports pregnant women and new mums who are clients of the Foundation. The principal of the group is that it provides a place where mums and their babies feel safe, can develop skills such as yoga and English classes, and where we can provide support when needed. The group is from 11am -3.30pm every Monday. Typically we have around 16 mums and 18 children and babies. We provide a hot lunch for everyone and it is a lot of fun.
We need volunteers to help support the group. Building up trust and helping women and children who have been exposed to very difficult experiences is at the heart of our work. We are looking for kind, energetic, reliable and patient volunteers, prepared to spend time working with us to ensure that this very special safe group thrives and builds on its solid foundations.
