Birth and Beyond Community Support

Jun 6, 2018 | VCS

NCT Birth and Beyond community support is a local peer support project that works with pregnant women and mothers with children under two living in the Feltham and Hounslow area to provide emotional support and practical help accessing local services. NCT recruits and trains local mothers to become volunteer peer supporters giving them a free 20 hour OCN accredited course. Once qualified peer supporters are matched with women who are referred to NCT via local services such as midwifery, health visiting and children’s centres. The aim is for peers to develop a long-term trusting relationship with the mothers in order to impact positively upon their health and wellbeing, reduce their risk of social isolation and improve their experience of being a parent which will also improve the long term outcomes for children. This project has also launched in Peterborough, South Yorkshire, Birmingham and Lincolnshire and is funded by NESTA until March 2019.
The project is currently recruiting for volunteers to train from September at a local children’s centre.  The project is also happy to take referrals for women requiring support.
