This role is currently vacant.
Valley Cushion Agents must be NCT members for insurance purposes and because they act on behalf of the charity. All volunteers are covered by the conditions of the Volunteer Policy & Charter.
Valley Cushions provide support for soreness, aching, tenderness and the healing process after giving birth, allowing the new mother to sit comfortably, relax and enjoy her new baby. The NCT has joined forces with UT Care Products Ltd to hire out the cushions as a valuable service.
The Valley Cushion Agent:
- offers a hire service from her own home, arranging collection by/delivery of cushions to hirers by arrangement.
A successful Valley Cushion Agent is well organised and approachable and understands the needs of women who have just had their baby. Being the Valley Cushion Agent is interesting and very worthwhile.
The NCT Volunteer & Member Profile 2008 showed that 47% of volunteers spent up to 2 hours in a typical week and a further 42% spent 2 to 8 hours on their volunteering. Depending on how proactive the individual Valley Cushion Agent chooses to be, the time spent on hiring cushions ranges from 1- 3 hours a month.
