Volunteering with us
Firstly, let me say a huge thank you to you for considering volunteering with Barnardo’s! Without volunteers, Barnardo’s would not be able to provide information and support to new mothers to assist them and their babies/children within their breastfeeding relationships; an absolutely vital service in the Bristol and South Gloucestershire area.
We schedule at least two endorsed training courses each year and invite up to 10 prospective peer supporters on each course. We ask that volunteers give a minimum commitment of one year at a Barnardo’s peer support group after successful completion of the training course.
The application window for our next training course, commencing September 2017, has now closed.
Subject to funding, our next training course will be in spring 2018 and we will be inviting expressions of interest from February 2018. Please return to this page for further information on or after 5th February 2018.
It will assist your application if you are already attending / familiar with your local Barnardo’s breastfeeding group. For details of all our Barnardo’s groups in Bristol and South Gloucestershire, please follow this link.
Any places offered on the training course will be conditional on you accepting your role within a specified group and being an active volunteer of that group upon completion of your training.
If you have any general questions or queries about the process or training, please contact me. Thank you once again for your interest in volunteering with Barnardo’s.
