What

is Parent

Buddies?

Parent Buddies is a one-to-one listening service for parents and carers.    

It has been designed to offer short term specific support, depending on individual needs.

This may include: listening, supporting parents with specific issues causing stress, and signposting parents to specialist services when needed.

Who are

Parent Buddies for?

This universal service is for parents/carers who feel they would benefit from a listening ear and support based on mutually agreed timescales.  Parent Buddies are volunteers who are parents or grandparents.  

Volunteers receive training and regular supervision. 

How do I get a Parent Buddy?

 

Parents/carers can either self refer or be referred by a

professional. Parents/carers are matched with available and suitable Parent Buddy volunteers. The volunteers will then contact parents/carers to offer an initial session. The initial session will be an opportunity to discuss and agree goals and sign a simple contract, including a confidentiality statement.
