Sparklers – Parent Mentoring Programme


Sparklers is a Parent Mentoring Programme that enables parents to empower each other. Through the Sparklers programme, parents at Children’s Centres and Primary Schools are trained as Mentors. These mentors support new, isolated or unconfident parents, to boost their confidence, make new friends and be great parents. The programme has been developed in partnership with Balsall Heath and Washwood Heath Children’s Centres, Approachable Parenting CIC and Clifton Primary School. With support from the Innovation Unit through the Turn-up Sparkbrook Case for Change Initiative.
