Volunteer with us

We really value the volunteers in our service and the range of skills and experience they bring to support local families. We are currently recruiting breastfeeding volunteers and meet and greet volunteers for our baby clinics. You can find out more at the volunteering page. Visit Beside You for more information on becoming a breastfeeding volunteer.

Students and research

We sometimes have students who observe health visiting practitioners in practice. The students can range from health visiting students, medical students or nursing students. Staff will always introduce themselves to you and ask for permission for students to attend appointments.

As a trust we sometimes are involved in research projects that we support. If you wish to be involved please look out for information on our website and your local clinics.
