Supporting parents

Could you make a difference to families?

Parenting is often described as the most important job in the world – but as we all know it doesn’t come with an instruction manual. With your help we can offer fun and effective parenting courses to families across the country.

Our parent support team welcomes volunteers with an active Christian faith who share our heart to support parents and strengthen families.

Let’s Stick Together

‘Let’s Stick Together’ is a one hour session which introduces simple, practical skills that help new mums and dads build a healthy relationship. Find out more about the session.

We are looking for volunteers to promote and present sessions for parents in their local area in Scotland and Birmingham where we are currently introducing Let’s Stick Together. We will provide training and on-going support. If you are interested, please register your interest with us.

Befrienders

Our telephone befrienders are available to support parents of children with additional needs. They offer encouragement and hope to people as they face an uncertain future by giving them opportunity to talk with someone who has travelled a similar journey.

If you have experience of parenting a child with additional needs, and feel you are now able to support others, then please register your interest with us.

Hosting a holiday for single parent families

Every year we run a number of one week ‘Take a Break’ holidays for single parent families and we need people to host these on our behalf, either as a volunteer or paid as a casual worker.

If you have experience of raising a family, and think this might be of interest, have a look at the role description for further information.
