Description

In Barnsley, we deliver a support service for new parents and kinship carers with children aged 0 to 3 years who are adjusting to pregnancy and the arrival of a new baby, whether a first time parent or bringing home a new addition to a growing family or caring for a young relative.  We aim to increase resilience and the emotional wellbeing of those who are experiencing isolation and low level emotional  wellbeing issues.  We work closing with Midwifery, Health Visitors and the Family Support Service. 

Our peer support volunteers provide support by offering a listening ear, helping them find their own strengths and solutions to build confidence, supporting families to access activities and signposting them to other sources of support.

All our volunteers, Peer Supporters are trained and receive ongoing training, mentoring and supervision throughout their involvement with Family Lives Support Service.
