* Grow by Action for Children

Our Vision

Based In Devon

At Grow, we care about parents and their growing family and know that parents are the most important part of their baby’s life. Our Grow classes can help to grow and nurture parent and baby or toddler’s well-being and the precious relationship between them in calm and relaxed environment. At Grow, our commitment to parents is:

· helping them to grow together from bump to baby and into toddlerhood and beyond

· supporting parent and baby to discover the world around you

· giving parents an insight into their baby or toddlers development, helping them to reach their milestones

· developing a baby or toddler’s interests, letting them discover the fascinating world around them where wonder leads to curious, imaginative babies and toddlers and happy confident parents

· helping parents to feel more confident as a new parent, their child is a unique individual who doesn’t come with a manual and we know that at times being a parent isn’t easy

· helping parents to recognise and understand their baby’s unique cues so they can give him/her what he/she needs

We care about parents and their family and want to make sure that their child gets the best start in life possible. We are here to provide a range of high quality classes designed to support the positive mental health and well-being during first few months and years of a child's life and their parent/s.

Starting Well Partnership South Worcestershire

Our Vision

Action For Children’s South Worcestershire Parenting and Community Development project plays an important role in supporting local families with children aged 0-19. By providing training, advice and guidance the local Action For Children team empower their clients to 'nip things in the bud' early and this limits the risk of escalation. The service places an emphasis on a holistic ‘whole family’ approach that will result in long term, sustainable change for clients.

SWPFS includes: Children Centre services, positive parenting courses, adult learning, support within schools and communities to engage young people with their education and work journey, and advice and guidance to young people who are not in education.

What Volunteers Say...

I was directed to Action for Children by a colleague on my course and after an initial meeting and attending the volunteer training session, with the Senior Volunteer Co-ordinator, I obtained a placement at the Buttercup Centre. The recruitment process was really simple and the support received from my supervisors and others at the centre is fantastic. If there is anything I am unsure of or the parents are looking for guidance, I know who to ask and where to signpost them.
