Volunteer with us

GBSN is run almost entirely by volunteers.

We’re a team of busy mums all with our own unique breastfeeding journey and experience with GBSN having helped us along the way.

Our generous volunteers donate their time freely so that we can continue to provide our service to you, free of charge and with a smile!

Whether you have a one-off hour to spare or a few hours a week – there are so many things you could do to help us. Here’s some ideas.

Please note all of the below roles are unpaid, volunteer opportunities.

Become a Host/Hostess

You may be able to offer to host/hostess at a group. This entails running the kitchen, helping to set up/pack up and helping parents to sign in.

We have had particularly good feedback from students who are interested in training as Health Professionals who found hosting a GBSN group beneficial and complementary to their line of study. 

We like our hosts to be regular volunteers so our mums have a familiar face to greet them at their group

Train as a Peer Supporter

Peer supporters are mums who have breastfed for at least 3 months, have completed a GBSN peer supporters’ training course and provide support to other breastfeeding mums.

All of our Peer Supporters are trained by qualified specialist Breastfeeding Counsellors. They agree to attend a group regularly for at least 6 months following their training. Training to become a GBSN Peer Supporter if free.

If you are interested in training with us, please talk to the Breastfeeding Counsellor at your local group.

Taking the time to attend an event we organise makes all the difference. If you can bring some friends too – that’s even better.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page for upcoming events.
