Working and volunteering with Somerset MNVP

Join our team of volunteers and help improve Somerset’s maternity services

    We are recruiting volunteers to find out about and share people’s experiences and views of maternity and neonatal services in Somerset, to help support changes and improvements in maternity care.

    We know volunteering can appear time consuming, especially if you have little ones, so we’re flexible about how much time you commit and there’s no pressure to do more than you can. You can also focus your volunteering work on the particular areas that you are interested in.

    Volunteering roles

    We’ve got two main volunteer roles that you can get involved with.

    Participation volunteer: If you just want to join our WhatsApp group and share your thoughts and views from the comfort of your own home this is the perfect role for you. Don’t worry if you don’t have WhatsApp, we can communicate in the way that suits you best.

    Engagement volunteer: If you’d like to get out and about into the community and chat to other maternity service users at groups and events, to hear their thoughts and experiences on maternity services, this is a great role for you. It requires a little more commitment and some basic training, but we’ll provide support and everything you need.

    To find out more please fill in this short form. You’re not committing to anything; it’s simply letting us know you’re interested and we’ll get in in touch to give you more information.
