Renfrewshire Council is partnering with Klas Care, Active Communities and The Tannahill Centre to deliver a new parenting programme called Empowering Parents, Empowering Communities (EPEC). EPEC is a peer led parenting programme and we are recruiting parents and carers from across Renfrewshire to train as Parent Group Leaders.
Parent Group Leaders will deliver the EPEC courses locally to small groups of parents of 2 to 11 years olds to help them:
- become more confident parents
- develop their parenting skills
- increase their understanding of positive parenting.
Parent Group Leaders will receive comprehensive training and ongoing supervision and support.
The training will be delivered one day a week for 10 weeks from the end of January 2022 until April 2022.
We will arrange the training days to suit parents and carers who volunteer. We can also look at arranging the training at evenings or weekends for people who work during the week. We will also provide free childcare if it is needed.
Parents will then deliver the training to other parents in the local communities from April 2022.
If anyone would be interested in finding out more about becoming a Parent / group Leader or would like to apply, the attached leaflet and link provide more information.
