A parent to parent voluntary support charity

Contact a Parent to Parent Supporter

Parent to Parent Support  (P2P) is all about one parent listening to another parent and providing support or information when necessary.  Most branches around the country have a parent (peer) supporter in their branch. Parent to Parent supporters (P2P's) can be available where you branch meets as a group, by email, online or by phone. Our aim in Cuidiú is to have a trained 'supporter' in each toddler/baby group so the mums can talk with ease, openly and honestly and without judgement about parenting. It is one of the most valuable services we offer. Parents who have been involved in a Cuidiú Branch for some time can do training to become  'Parent to Parent' supporter.

Peer supporters do not provide advice and tell you how to be the best parents. They do not have any magic solutions. They are willing to give you a comfortable and welcoming environment and a listening ear and support for anyone to talk in confidence about the ups and downs of parenting all the way from before you give birth to your first baby ...... right up until your offspring fly the nest.

The list shows all the P2P's in Branches around the country; Please consider, P2P's  are volunteers who use their personal phones and are in a home setting when you call.

Occassionally a Peer Supporter may recognise that you're in need of a bit more assistance. That's nothing to worry about. Our volunteers are trained in peer support but they are not professionals, and part of their role involves helping you find the service that's most appropriate to your situation.
