Group support sessions

Groups Support sessions are for our Family Support and Group Volunteers, giving a valuable opportunity to get to know all the co-ordinators and catch up with other volunteers, as well as learning from others’ experiences with families and exploring various issues.

There are also sessions specifically for Breastfeeding Peer Support Volunteers.

The sessions are for active volunteers, volunteers waiting to be matched, and for resting volunteers who aren’t ready to start supporting a family/group yet but want to start getting involved again.

For active volunteers, ‘one to one’ supervision with your co-ordinator will not be changing at all, but it could be in the future that they might not take as long because you will be getting support at the group sessions too.

You can attend as many of the sessions as you want, but we would ask that you attend a minimum of 3 sessions a year. Please book your places asap by phoning the Hub on 0151 608 8288 or emailing admin@homestartwirral.co.uk

A summary of what was discussed and any issues raised at each of the sessions will be recorded on the website. In that way you won’t miss out on sessions you can’t attend.
