Parenting is full of highs and lows.  Having someone to share these with can make all the difference. Our Parent Buddies are trained volunteers who offer parents, grandparents and carers short term, informal and confidential support. Parent Buddies want to empower parents through one-to-one listening support, to help them provide the best chances in life for their children. If you need a listening ear and want to talk through a particular parenting issue, Parent Buddies can offer you support within agreed timescales. Parents can either self-refer or be referred through agencies.

Resound is continuing to offer one-to-one support through our Parent Buddies service.
