Q - Do you need any particular qualifications to be a parent & child (P&C) carer?

A – Not necessarily. Just a willingness to work with both parent and child; you don’t need to have any experience in the care of young babies.

Q - Does this only cater for mothers and babies?

A – No, it could be a father and baby or both parents and their baby. Occasionally, the parent has a young child already as well as a baby, but needs some support for a variety of reasons

Q - Will we be expected to care for the baby e.g. feed, change and bath them?

A – You are not carer to the baby. Your role is to support the parent(s) to look after their own baby.
