Home-Start is a local community network of trained volunteers and expert support, helping families with young children through their challenging times. We are there for parents when they need us the most because childhood can’t wait. 

This is an exciting development for Home-Start Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre. 

We are working in partnership with Home-Start Oldham, Stockport and Tameside, and are now looking for a Dad Matters Co-ordinator to join our team and develop local universal and targeted interventions for dads in the perinatal period. 

The successful candidate will work closely with colleagues from Parent Infant Mental Health Services and with colleagues from Maternity, Health Visiting, and Children’s Services and with a wide range of dads and dads-to-be. They will develop our Dad Matters volunteering opportunities in both areas, will facilitate and co-facilitate sessions with dads and will develop links with other VCSE and community groups. 

An understanding of the risks of developing poor mental health in the perinatal period for dads and of the impact of supporting a partner with perinatal mental health issues is essential, as is a flexible approach to work and ability to travel across Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre.
