Parents supporting parents, it’s what we’re all about. What we love about our volunteers is how much they want to pay forward the support they received. Meet Jo, she’s an amazing human:
As soon as I started getting into the swing of carrying belle I realised how much freedom this gave me, and how being a single parent wasn’t that scary after all. I was able to get on with day to day life as well as caring for my daughter. I had all the support from parenting north east to become a peer supporter then continue further to be a consultant. Being a consultant is something very personal to myself, I’m very passionate about helping people who need that bit of extra push to realise they are amazing parents to their children and that having time to ourself is also very important.
Jo is a qualified sling consultant, she can be found at our HQ from time to time, at our Morpeth library session and is available for consultations around the Wansbeck area..
