Bromley, Lewisham & Greenwich Mind’s award-winning Mindful Mums service has delivered support to over 500 women within its first two years. We are looking for an experienced, dynamic Project Coordinator to manage the project across the Bromley and Lewisham boroughs for a period of maternity cover.

Delivered through funding from the Bromley and Lewisham Clinical Commissioning Groups, the Mindful Mums Programme aims to prevent pregnant and new mums from developing mental health problems.

The Project Coordinator (maternity cover) will lead a team of 3 staff and 50 volunteers to deliver Mindful Mums peer support services to new and pregnant mums, including wellbeing groups, specialist groups and one-to-one befriending.
