Brent Parent Champions

Mariya collects her Parent Champions certificate - image
Success!

Very close to Wembley Stadium is Brent Civic Centre. It really is an impressive council building and hosts a broad array of services, with the focus clearly on community and diversity.

Wembley library is part of the ground floor and a famous supermarket store is also easily accessible.

We worked with council officer, Andrea Lagos, and through the Family and Childcare Trust, the Parent Champions programme, to deliver our training and support to those attending the sessions.

At the end of the second day, Mariya, see above, and fifteen other new Parent Champions received certificates. Proud to be going out into the community to let other parents and families know about a whole range of services that are available for free for families with young children.

In Brent there is also a focus on Health. A new programme was discussed to help support families when they need health advice, without going straight to A & E. Radhikah Howarth, also with FCT, talked to the Parent Champions about new schemes that will help.

From the previous training last year there have been a record number of parents contacted and more and more information is now available to support parents and families.

A great scheme, a great place and Smith Martin Partnership are pleased to deliver the training.
