Peer Support Groups

Please visit here: Light support during Covid-19

Light offer group peer support to families struggling from pregnancy to 2 years post-natally.

Whilst some of our support groups are currently still on hold following COVID-19, we are offering one face to face group on Fridays.

This group will be at Primrose Children’s Centre in Sheffield from 10am-11am.
Spaces are limited for this and need to be booked beforehand.
Alternatively, we run virtual support groups via Microsoft Teams, Wednesdays 1pm & Thursdays 11am.

What to expect at our support groups
  • A friendly welcome from our staff and volunteers
  • A safe, warm space and engaging environment for babies and young children
  • Plenty of hot and cold drinks, biscuits and fruit
  • An informal, relaxed atmosphere – you can drop in and out at any time, speak as much or as little as you would like to, share as much or as little as you feel comfortable with. There is no formal discussion, introductions or agenda – we are here to listen, empathise, offer support and company
  • A safe, confidential space to say what you really feel – there is never any obligation to speak up, but we offer an entirely open, non-judgemental space where you can be honest about your thoughts and feelings
  • Further information and support – whilst we don’t offer ‘advice’, we can help signpost you to other information and support networks and organisations who may be able to offer additional or different kinds of support.

Coming to a group for the first time

We understand that joining  a group, especially for the first time, can be difficult for many people.

If you’re worried about attending a group, we can offer 1:1 support via phone, text or email first and one of our volunteers can meet you beforehand so you can attend the group together.
