Dads in Mind, Dads’ Support Worker
New Role in Devon (Torbay/South Hams)

Bluebell Care Trust is delighted to be able to expand its Dads in Mind service into Torbay and the South Hams, with funding from the Rayne Foundation.  

We are looking for a Dad, with lived experience of mental health difficulties, related to becoming a new parent, or who may have supported his partner, ideally also with some experience of working in a support role or equivalent, to come on board as our new Dads in Mind worker, to help develop this service in the Torbay & South Hams areas of Devon.

  • Do you live in Torbay/South Hams in Devon and have up to 10 hours a week free?
  • Would you like a paid role working for a local charity who are passionate about supporting new families with their emotional wellbeing/mental health during pregnancy and beyond?
  • Are you an emotionally resilient Dad with first-hand experience of managing your own or a partner’s depression and anxiety related to pregnancy and birth?
  • Do you have any experience of working professionally in a mental health or family support role or similar?
  • Are you friendly, approachable and a self-starter with excellent interpersonal skills?  
  • Would you welcome the opportunity to offer 1:1 support to other new dads who are having a difficult time?
  • Do you have the necessary skills to manage and run social media also offering support to dads?
  • Do you have your own transport?
  • If you can answer ‘yes’ to the majority of the above questions - we’d really like to hear from you!
