Breastfeeding peer supporters
Are you a current or previous breastfeeding mother, passionate about breastfeeding and keen to use your knowledge and experience to support other Lewisham mothers on their breastfeeding journey?
The breastfeeding peer supporter course gives learners a nationally recognised open college network qualification which, along with the volunteer experience and up to date references, could help with job opportunities or as a route into further education.
The course is open to mothers of all ages and backgrounds to enable them to widen their knowledge, skills and experience to support breastfeeding in Lewisham.
To apply for the peer supporter course you do not need any qualifications, all we ask is that you have had some experience of breastfeeding your baby and a passion and commitment to volunteer and support other Lewisham mothers.
Once qualified, you will receive regular supervision and ongoing training, with the course often opening the door to many other volunteering and career opportunities.
The peer supporter course consists of a two-hour session per week, run over six weeks. There will be a crèche facility available, with babies in arms welcome in the training room.
