Parents in Mind provides support to all parents across Newham - mothers and birthing people, fathers and non-birthing partners.

The service is funded by Newham ICB.

What support is available?

Support is provided across a range of Children’s Centres, Family Hubs, Community Centres, outdoor spaces and also online via Zoom and WhatsApp (both group and 1-1). Support is tailored to client preference, and moves gently, but with focus: normalising the difficulties of caring for a baby, decreasing isolation, and empowering parents with resources and information.

Project staff Leah (women and birthing people service), and Imran (dads and partners service) are the first point of contact for all enquires – they are at the end of the phone for those interested in support, and are ready to liaise with any of our brilliant local partner organisations to make sure care is ‘joined up’ for our clients.

Become a Parents in Mind volunteer

Our project is always keen to welcome new volunteers – parents with lived experience of the struggles raising a newborn can bring, who are passionate about supporting the wellbeing of those in the Newham community navigating these struggles today, and can give two hours a week, in exchange for free accredited mental health training and the chance to make a transformative impact on the early days of family life.
