Who Is A Flourish Host?
A Flourish host is a woman who has been licensed by the Grow Great campaign to run Flourish visits in her community. She is not a healthcare worker, but rather a community activist, passionate about mothers and children and committed to supporting them through the critical first 1000 days.
What does being a social franchise entail?
As a Flourish host, you will be expected to run a minimum of two 90 minute Flourish antenatal groups per week, over a period of ten weeks, at least three times per year. Licensed hosts will also be invited to train on the postnatal curriculum and once qualified will also have the opportunity to offer postnatal Flourish groups to their community in addition to the antenatal groups they run.
