Help wanted! New parents need you

Do you know what it’s like to deal with an inconsolable, crying baby? 

 

Do you understand the pressures of parenting young children?

 

Would you like to provide invaluable support to mothers and fathers? 

 

Cry-sis, Britain’s only charity offering advice and support to parents of crying babies, is building their team. 

ListenersCommittee members and treasurer needed

Cry-sis needs people who:

  • Are self-starters.

  • Motivated to work roughly 2-3 hours per week, without supervision.

  • Are computer literate.

  • Have strong communication skills.

  • Have experience of coping with a crying baby.

Listeners

Listeners are on the Cry-sis front line, manning the phones and providing much-needed support for mums, dads or carers struggling with crying babies.

Our helpline volunteers will provide a sympathetic ear and offer practical suggestions to the caller.

We will provide training and no medical knowledge is required because we do not provide medical advice.

Volunteering is completely flexible and from the comfort of your own home; you decide how much time you can donate.
