Parents (and grandparents!) play a huge role in the success of SSBC.

They help to lead and shape the programme..

Parent Champions are our lifeblood.  They are key members of the team, supporting our governance by sitting on our Strategic Partnership Board, Executive Implementation Group and feeding in to our work at all levels from interviewing potential new members of the team, helping to plan and design activities, organising community events and lots more. 

They help to run groups and activities..

Local parents and grandparents help out in many SSBC groups that take place in the community, ensuring that things run smoothly and families feel welcome.

Some of our activities are delivered by a new paid workforce who are local people with lived experience of parenting.

They help to spread the word..

The best way for local families to hear about the free groups and activities available from SSBC is from other local families.  Our Parent Ambassadors help us by sharing information about our activities, attending our regular Community Partnership meetings to find out about the programme and supporting our work in whatever way they can.

They help to develop and test new ideas through our Ideas Fund..

Every year SSBC has an Ideas Fund totalling £50,000 which supports local people to unleash their creativity and develop new ideas to give every child the best start in life.
