Sharing Everyday Experiences and Drawing on Skills

About S.E.E.D.S

S.E.E.D.S is a free programme where a family is matched with an experienced and trained volunteer parent support worker 00431012to teach them various parenting and home skills in a one-on-one situation in their home environment. The worker is trained to pass on practical household skills to help you, as a parent, to feel more confident, learn helpful parenting tips, and to reduce stress about the day-to-day activities of parenting, as well as other practical skills for use in the home.

These can include skills such as parenting routines, time management, coping with stress, child health and well-being, nutrition, menu planning, cooking and baking, budgeting, sewing and garment repairs, housekeeping and hygiene.

Participants can set their own goals and work towards them with their volunteer over a period of three months. The service is confidential and nonjudgmental, and aimed at parents with preschool aged children.


Become a volunteer

The S.E.E.D.S programme is always seeking new parent support workers. Our ideal volunteers are practical, open-minded, warm, empathetic and have a good sense of humor.  If you have raised children of your own, know how to bake or sew, and know how to make your money stretch when times are tight, we'd love to talk to you.  You will receive training and on-going supervision, as well as the chance to make a real difference in the life of a family. Contact our S.E.E.D.S coordinator to apply.
