We introduce the peer supporter we have chosen to the parent and if they feel comfortable with each other at the first meeting, the sessions start as soon as possible.
Our peer supporters meet regularly with parents for about an hour - usually once a week, but sometimes more often. They will talk about whatever is important to the parent. The peer supporter will find ways to help the parent express what she is feeling and what is on her mind. The support will be provided for as long as the parent needs it and will take place wherever the parent feels most comfortable. Parents can use our crèche and we will arrange transport if that will help them make the most of the support.
