- The Head of Mentoring role has always been shared by two volunteer members. Sally-Anne Holman stepped down in the summer, meaning that Alison Edwards is doing the job alone. Ali is also the Company Secretary and runs Introductory Workshops for Doula UK – so has quite a full plate, in addition to her personal and professional commitments! This position is open to any Doula UK Doula Mentor and you can read about what’s involved here.
- Gemma Haywood has taken the decision to step down from the Head of Membership role, and Leila Baker will be taking on this role for an initial period of three months with immediate effect. We are hoping Leila will wish to continue in the role after that time, but other members are encouraged to apply if the Head of Membership position is of interest.
The Leadership Team meets quarterly in person, and holds online meetings in between as required. In addition the team uses an online communication platform called Slack, to manage the day to day task of running Doula UK, with Lizzie (organisational manager)’s support.
Key Volunteer role
Leila Baker and Nikki Mather have been sharing the Rep Coordinator role over the past year, and have worked hard to streamline processes in order to make the role a one-doula job! We are now looking for a new volunteer to take over, so if you are a Doula UK Rep and are interested in looking after the wider team of Reps, please contact Leila and Nikki on email@example.com for more information about the role. A full handover will be provided, and support given throughout.
In 2016/17 we were very lucky to receive grant funding from the Big Lottery to support our 2016 Conference and project work in the North West of England.
If you have experience writing grant funding applications, and would like to help Doula UK secure grant funding for essential projects such as Access Fund volunteer training and investment in our website, please get in touch.
Do you have a background in media, law, education, IT project management or web development? If you’d like to share your expertise with Doula UK, we’d love to hear from you!
All positions are open to Members and Friends of Doula UK. A successful candidates who does not fall into either category will be invited to become a Friend of Doula UK at no cost.
