Cuidiú Parent Support Sector

Becoming a parent is a time of great change and as well as the obvious joys there are many challenges. The role of the Cuidiú Parent Supporter is to provide support to parents as they find their feet and deal with the many ups and downs along this journey. As parents, being able to talk with ease, openly, honestly and without judgement about parenting in a safe environment is one of the most valuable services we offer through our Parent Support Sector. Our Parent Supporters provide a listening ear as well as general support and evidence based information to support parents and carers throughout their parenthood journey.

Parent supporters do not offer advice or tell you how to be the best parents. They do not have any magic solutions. But they will give you a comfortable and welcoming environment and will provide a space for you to talk in confidence about the ups and downs of parenting. 
 
Members who have been involved in a Cuidiú Branch for six months or more can apply to train to become a Parent Supporter - please contact Sector Panel on parentsupportpanel@cuidiu.ie

Please note the Facebook Groups may link to open Cuidiú groups. Caution should be used when posting personal information as this may be viewed by general Faceook community. It is recommended to contact the Parent Supporters in those Branches before disclosing information.

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.
