Due to the success of our Dad Matters programme across Greater Manchester, we are working in partnership with Home-Start Rochdale to develop the work further in the Tameside and Rochdale areas.  We are looking for a Dad Matters Coordinator 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 Tameside and Rochdale.
