Here at Zest we offer EPEC training (Empowering Parents Empowering Communities).
This is an amazing successful parenting approach. EPEC is for local parents, led by local parents.
As an EPEC volunteer parent group leader, you will ∗ Receive an amazing free training and support from our local EPEC team. * Learn to lead practical, caring groups for local parents. * Share tried and tested methods that give children the best start in life. * Join a group of like-minded parents to make a difference to your local community. * Develop your skills and confidence. * Gain experience that will help you to fulfil your ambitions.
You will then co deliver Being A Parent groups at Zest and citywide. These groups are also delivered to Parents of Children with ASD, for Teens (from September 2022) as well as for co parents supporting parents to work together.
Zest run a dedicated Early Years Volunteer Support service set up to deliver group support activities to families and children aged 0-5 years. Volunteers support and run activities for children and families in children’s centres and in the community, whilst also supporting and encouraging families to engage in positive activities and developing positive, professional relationships.
All volunteers will be provided with training and full support from our Early Years Project Officer, Lynn Wragg.
