If you’re a dad who’s had experience with Dad Matters in the past and would like to help other dads, who are in a current situation you have been, then we would love to hear from you, your help and input can be invaluable.
Even if you haven’t had experience with us in the past, then don’t let this put you off, as with any volunteers , we offer training where help is at hand every day.
If you would like to sign up then please email us here, we will then send the relevant information to you ASAP.
You will be meeting dads at various venues, speaking to them and distributing resources, as well as facilitating our face to face groups for dads in various situations.
You will be monitoring, moderating, developing and contributing to our online support groups and also facilitating dad and baby events in various venues.
Any experiences you have had of any of the challenges dads face, such as miscarriage or perinatal loss, perinatal mental health issues, supporting a partner through perinatal mental health issues, wellbeing, etc, are invaluable to us and the dads you will be talking to. You may not realize how important you are to fellow dads, but you are. The rewards from becoming a volunteer are fantastic. Not just for you personally, but for those you are helping.
