Learning To Feed ambassador

HENRY Blackpool

HENRY Blackpool supports parents with all aspects of infant feeding. We have a team of qualified infant feeding practitioners who run regular drop-in groups and workshops for parents alongside 1:1 support in the hospital, at home and via our helpline.

Our Learning To Feed ambassadors support our work by promoting 6 key messages about infant feeding and signposting individuals who require infant feeding support to our service for professional advice.

You will be based in the community, visiting the Family Hubs to initiate conversations with parents of babies and young children about all aspects of infant feeding. You will receive training in how to promote the 6 Learning to Feed messages, how to respond in an empathic and non-judgemental way and when and how to signpost to our service for support.

You will not be required to provide professional advice to families.

  • Interested in supporting families with babies and young children in your community
  • Experience of parenting or working with young children an advantage
  • Sociable and enjoy chatting and having conversations with people from all walks of life?
  • Empathic and non-judgemental?
