The Power of Volunteering During Pregnancy, Birth & Beyond


This event brings together national leaders, innovators, researchers and lead practitioners who are already delivering successful perinatal volunteer programmes.

The agenda provides vital insight into how untapped strengths in communities can be effectively mobilised to achieve collaborative outcomes for strategies such as Better Births, the Healthy Child Programme and transforming public services.

Throughout the day we will be drawing on the latest evidence of ‘what works’ and exploring approaches for designing, implementing, and ensuring quality when developing volunteering programmes focusing on pregnancy, birth and the transition to parenthood. Pioneering local programmes will show case their approach, challenges and achievements, and provide practical examples of how to embed volunteering alongside public services.
