Community Parents Project:

Information for parents and families


  • Are you or a family member expecting a first baby?
  • Are you a second or third time mum who experienced difficulties or challenges first time around? 
  • Could you do with a listening ear?
  • Someone to be there for you through the changes to you and your new family?
  • A Community Parent is a trained volunteer who offers support to mums and dads-to-be during pregnancy and the first 8-12 months of family life.
  • We aim to help you feel confident and prepared for being a parent.
