About the volunteering opportunity

The first months after the birth of a child are a big task for all parents. With the offer wellcome - practical help after birth, we support parents who want relief during this time, especially when other helping hands are missing. Our volunteers accompany families in a practical and uncomplicated way.

Your Tasks

Give young parents a good start in family life. As a wellcome volunteer, you will provide concrete help: a walk with the baby, playing with the sibling or accompanying the mother or father to the pediatrician. And you can do this flexibly: you meet the family once or twice a week for 2-3 hours for 3-4 months. Then the next family is already looking forward to it. A special qualification is not necessary, because you will be well accompanied by your team coordination.

What's needed

For this volunteering opportunity, intermediate German skills are required.
  • Pleasure in dealing with babies
  • Empathy
  • Tolerance
  • Openness
  • Reliability
  • Discretion

Time required

Regularly
Approx. 2 hours per week.
On weekdays, during the day

Meetings between volunteers and families usually take place 1-2x a week for 1-2 hours each. The appointment is set between volunteers and families.

Important notice

We offer:

  • A commitment that you can organize flexibly
  • A wellcome team coordination, which accompanies the assignments professionally and in which you have a reliable contact person at your side
  • Regular meetings and exchange with other volunteers from the team
  • Further training and qualification around the topic of family and baby - you are of course insured and your travel expenses are reimbursed
