Due to the success of our trailblazing projects and demand, we are launching three new streams to our Doula project.
We have an evidence based model of supporting families. Gaining recognition nationally for our work. We are trailblazers and continue to support women and families.
With all these streams you will become part of a nationally recognised, (BACP and ICO and NHS Information governance registration), not for profit Community Interest Company organisation supporting families. With endorsed training, policies and procedures, debriefing by qualified counsellor and birthworker, comprehensive staff and volunteer support, giving both worker and family piece of mind. We are the only Doula organisation in the country (possibly the world) to have this in place.
Doula support workers.
Firstly we are looking to train and recruit “Doula support workers” across the country.
These workers will be volunteers (with the potential for paid positions in the future) that commit to so many hours support women and families in group and one to one settings. You will support women and families alongside Doulas. You will not be required to be on call.
You will work within our Ethical Code and policies.
You will be trained with our CACHE Endorsed training.
There is a cost to the training, sliding scale due to household income and whether funding is available.
This is currently free for those living within BB postcodes.
Volunteer nanny worker
We are looking for volunteers to provide care for children whilst the mother is birthing in the hospital.
You will work with a Doula to provide holistic support to parents.
You will ideally have a childcare qualification or willing to train in Core Skills.
Hours will be as and when needed.
Potential for paid positions in the future.
Due to our success and the amount of requests we have received we now have the opportunity for Snowdrop branches to open across the country. This will give the option for funding support with access to our policies, software, research and knowledge and name. Due to different demographics within areas each area may work slightly differently. We have a procedure to follow for set up with regular audits. These audits help to ensure consistency across, protecting the families and workers.
There is a cost to this.
Funding can be accessed for this.
If you would like to be involved then please get in contact at firstname.lastname@example.org with subject matter “Doula support work”, “Nanny” and/or “new branch”.
