The Sycamore Trust UK- Empowering Parents Empowering Communities

Jon Cruddas MP was recently contacted by the Sycamore Trust. The Sycamore Trust is a charity based in Barking and Dagenham which supports parents, carers and individuals for whom Autistic Spectrum Disorders and/or Learning Difficulties are part of everyday life.

Their services currently range across the London Boroughs of Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge. They offer a range of specialised services designed to support families, educate the community, and empower individuals of all ages to flourish and be valued members of society.

The Sycamore Trust will be working alongside the DABD to deliver their new program, “Empowering Parents Empowering Communities”, within Barking and Dagenham. They are currently recruiting parents, grandparent and carer volunteers from all backgrounds, ethnicities and faiths to become Parent Group Leaders as part of the program.

EPEC is a national parenting approach that trains local parents to lead groups that support other local parents. Parent Group Leader training enables individuals to deliver quality parenting support to families through a structed parenting program. Becoming a Volunteer Parent Group Leader gives you the chance to help families gain the skills they need to give their children the best start in life.
