Dear Tower Hamlets parents, supporters and friends,  

NHS Tower Hamlets are delighted to announce the launch of their new project called; Sure STEPS. 

 

Sure STEPS offers one to one peer support to pregnant women and parents who are struggling with the challenges of parenting from pregnancy up to the first year with the baby.

They are looking for volunteers to:

Provide emotional support, a listening ear, and to signposting parents to relevant services.

The Peer Support Volunteers will also raise awareness of the services provided at the local Children Centres

 

Volunteering for the Sure STEPS project gives the opportunity to Tower Hamlets residents to attend a Free 8 weeks accredited training course “OCNLR Level 2 Award in Peer Mentoring” . Having completed the training, Volunteers Peer Supporter will need to commit 2 – 4 hours per week, with all volunteer expenses paid (e.g. travel cost).

 

*The next training is starting the  6th March 2019. If there is anyone interested please tell them to email sure.steps@safh.org.uk or call 07969023218
