The Peer2Peer Support program will offer both an online live chat service and an email support service for women and their families.
Our aim is to offer one-2-one support with empathy, and a non-judgmental attitude.
Our program will be made possible by our selection of volunteers, who have themselves experienced physiological and/or physical injuries from a difficult birth and are in a place where they can now support others who are walking the journey to recovery.
We are currently accepting expressions of interest from women wishing to be peer support volunteers with the ABTA. Training and ongoing support is provided and your time commitment is very flexible so you can honour your family, work and leisure commitments.
In order to look after our volunteers’ well-being, we encourage you to wait until you consider yourself ‘well on the way to recovery’ before applying as you will be regularly exposed to experiences that may reflect your own and therefore trigger painful memories.
If you would like to become a member of our volunteer team, please complete the form below, and we will be in touch. Our first training day is scheduled for Saturday 14 July 2018 and volunteer applications received prior to this date will be considered for participation in the training.
