We have a volunteer who is our Parent Champion who acts as a voice for parents at our 'Local Advisory Board' meetings. Our advisory board is made up of staff and local professionals e.g. Health Visitors. The role of the Parent Champion is to act as a link between the community and the centre.
The group meets just three times a year. Our Parent Champion also attends these meetings, explaining the views and ideas of families. Our Parent Champion volunteers at least once a week at the centre.
