Parent Gym Coaches Required

Looking for a stepping stone back to work after time away or looking for a career change? Perhaps you’d like to upgrade your presentation and facilitation skills? Training to be a volunteer Parent Gym coach offers you all this as well as the chance to change the lives of parents for years to come.

Parent Gym runs free 6-week parenting programmes for parents of primary school aged children and has worked with over 6000 parents throughout the country. Currently there are 15 coaches within the Leeds/Bradford area who have worked with 25 schools and we are looking to expand further.

The Parent Gym programme consists of six weekly interactive sessions covering the key challenges of parenting and provides parents with the skills and confidence to enable their families to flourish. Each week’s session is devoted to a different topic and the highly participative sessions explore a vast range of questions such as “how can I get my child to open up?” and “how can I build my child’s resilience?”.

As a Parent Gym Coach you will navigate a group of up to 20 mums and dads through an action-packed workshop and will need to commit to delivering a session for free one morning a week on the same day for six consecutive weeks during term time. You will be provided with world-class training and ongoing support from local mentors who are volunteer coaches themselves.

So if you are empathic, and have the confidence and ability to relate well to people from different backgrounds please get in touch. No previous experience is necessary, however coaching or group facilitation skills would be useful.

Next try-out is on 9th September, 2018.

Research Project – Positive Parenting

I work as a researcher in the NHS and have had training from the University of London (UCL) to deliver a parenting programme called Video-feedback Intervention to promote Positive Parenting (VIPP), which aims to help parents to better understand and respond to their child’s communication and behaviour.

I am looking for a ‘practice family’- a parent and child (aged 1-6) to help me with the final stage of that training, before I can use it in an NHS clinical setting. It would involve 4 home visits (approx. 1 and half each). We video-record you playing with your child, then watch these clips together and talk about what we notice about your child’s communication and behaviour. It is a very positive, non-judgemental programme and I am told that most families really enjoy it, finding the time helpful to learn and discover more about their child. The information would, of course, be stored securely, kept confidential and the video clips destroyed at the end of the 4 sessions. If anyone is interested in taking part, please contact me lisa.hackney1@nhs.net

Volunteer with Home-Start Leeds

Volunteer with Home-Start Leeds

Gain confidence; learn new skills supporting families across Leeds

Home-Start Leeds is a family support charity, supporting families In Leeds for over 30 years.  In 2016-17 145 volunteers supported 198 families.

Our volunteers visit families in their homes, support them with difficulties they are facing such as isolation, mental health or substance misuse.  In addition there may be children with additional needs, multiple births or be part of a blended family.

Our volunteers are there to offer emotional and practical support in a restorative way working ‘with’ a family.    Volunteers are someone to talk to and who offer support and options when needed.  Practical support might include supporting a family to access a children centre, going to the park, encouraging play or helping after school.  Our volunteers support families once a week for approximately 3 hours a week for as long as the family needs support – typically a year to 18 months.  Volunteering with Home-Start Leeds is flexible and can take place in the daytime, evening or weekend.

All our volunteers attend a 45 hours preparation. We offer preparation courses in the daytime during school hours or in the evening.  Volunteers are supported by one of our highly trained co-ordinators throughout their time volunteering with us.  Co-ordinators offer on-going support to volunteers making sure they receive all the help they need when supporting a family.

Our volunteers are parents or have parenting experience and understand the struggles of having a family.  We offer our own on-going free programme of learning opportunities, the chance to undertake Level 1/2/3 qualifications when funding is available and work experience opportunities.

A Volunteer’s Story

Michelle has been a Home-Start volunteer for two years and has supported a few families in that time.  She is currently on our work experience programme for 6 months, shadowing our co-ordinator team and learning about the work that we do.  Michelle says “I would encourage anyone to volunteer with Home-Start it is so rewarding, they are like one big family, everyone helps with any problems or difficulties you may have”.   Volunteering with Home-Start is a wonderful opportunity and makes a big difference to families’ lives”   During her volunteering Michelle has successfully completed an Level 4 qualification on “Working with Parents”

For many volunteers, their journey with Home-Start is the first step to building their confidence and self- esteem, and can be that first step into further training or paid work.
