mum and daughter, Parent Champions 1-2-1 support
  • Persistent disruptive behaviour in school
  • School refusal
  • Alienation from the family
  • Vulnerability due to additional needs
  • Involved in substance misuse
  • Social, emotional, or mental ill health

Through our Parent Champion network, Brilliant Parents offer peer to peer community-based support for parents of children 10 – 18 years of age, across Hillingdon.

This unique style of support consists of weekly check-ins via a phone/zoom chat.  Our Parent Champions are volunteer parents who understand local, cultural needs and are trained to offer non-judgemental support.

Sometimes you may just want a space to offload, other times you may want some guidance, or to discuss a particular issue. Whatever your need, our Parent Champions are here to support you.

For more information call Sarah 07495 024 449.

Parent testimonials

I like the approach as it feels far less judgemental and just like talking to another parent. I have received tips and guidance and suggestions to implement to improve my teenager’s behaviour and really felt supported with it.

My Parent Champion is fantastic! It was good to speak to someone with a different perspective. Previous support felt like a tick box solution. However, working with my Parent Champion I have changed my mind about how it is to receive parenting support. It was nice to talk to someone and it was a really positive experience.

‘Very good to talk and feel you can talk about anything without judgement. They don't know your family so you feel you can talk freely. You feel more positive in yourself to talk and be heard and supported.
