Funded by the Big Lottery Fund, our Parent Link Volunteer Programme supports volunteers who have been through our Parenting Matters course who then want to run a support group in their own community.
All parent groups completing one of our courses are offered the opportunity to continue to meet as a support group. Many parents welcome the opportunity to meet up with other parents from their course at a time and location to suit them.
Support groups offer an informal, friendly environment in which to develop friendships and encourage each other to maintain the positive changes instigated during the course. They also give parents a chance to look at further needs or issues that have not been fully explored on the course, so enhancing the course experience.
These groups will take a variety of forms, whether it be a walking group, craft group or even just a catch up over a coffee. Please click here to find your local group supported by PNS.
Over the next three years this service will operate in Aberdeen, East Ayrshire, Glasgow, Inverclyde, North Ayrshire and South Lanarkshire.
