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.

* Wigan FIP

Our Vision

Action for Children’s Intensive Family Support in Wigan is a voluntary service that will offer an intensive level of parenting and family support to help make positive changes to family life.

By working with the whole family, IFS is committed to improving the quality of relationships between parents/carers and children and also the wider family.

 

IFS workers can provide practical and emotional support in a range of settings where families feel comfortable and safe, for example, Children’s Centres, Schools, Health Centres as well as their own homes.

 

We work with families at the times they may need that extra support; this may involve working outside of normal working hours

 

We’re looking for volunteers who would like to enhance the service offered to service users by supporting project staff with their direct work with parents, children and young people.

 

You will get opportunities to build effective working relationships with service users of all ages and support them in making positive changes. This may include supporting attendance at medical appointments, accessing activities in the local area or attending appointments. Our volunteers can use their own skills in engaging service users in activities through various mediums such as sport, cooking, arts and crafts.
