"My first experience with PNS was in 2012, when I did the 'Getting on with Your Child' course, I loved it from start to finish and was already looking at ways where I could be involved with Parent Network Scotland more. I went on to complete other courses and in between having babies I was a parent link volunteer. I’ve been involved with many groups and stepped in to perform in ‘Our Journey So Far’.

Since joining the team again in 2017, I have been involved in drama created by the Young Parents. I love using drama to explore and create. Our performance like the one before was fantastic and really shows what it is like for parents who come through our doors.

I have been very busy in Barrhead, East Renfrewshire trying to engage with lots of parents and delivering our courses. So far, three groups of parents have successfully completed the Parenting Matters course with one of those groups still meeting every week. I have just recently started a course in Dunterlie, I spent a bit of time getting to know the parents, using Bookbug  to connect and engage with the families.

Since my background is in drama, I hope to bring more of it to Parent Network Scotland. I love being part of the team, every time I deliver a course I ‘fill my cup’" -Annmarie x
