Light Sheffield is a peer-support charity that supports mums with postnatal depression and other mental illness around childbirth. This is a great opportunity to join our team of dedicated volunteers.
Approximately one thousand women in Sheffield suffer from depression or anxiety relating to childbirth every year.
Could you use your own experience of postnatal depression or anxiety to offer much needed peer support to these mums and their families?
Could you spare a couple of hours a week to help facilitate a peer support group in Sheffield, Rotherham or Doncaster, or be a ‘buddy’ for a family, and make a difference?
If so we’d love to hear from you – please contact Ellie or Josanne on [email protected] or call us 0114 438 8962
