About the project

Outside the Box is currently working on a new project exploring ways to develop peer support for people in parenting roles.

This new project builds upon the Mums Supporting Mums work in rural areas that supported and encouraged peer support and small scale initiatives for parents, including mums who had poorer mental wellbeing or were facing other challenges

Over the next year we will be working with interested organisations, people, communities and families to explore what things help support different parents and families.

The aim of the work is to support and encourage greater

  • Social inclusion for parents and their children
  • Support for parents who have poorer mental wellbeing
  • Access to activities and other services when needed

We will share the things we have learnt with people and organisations across Scotland by:

  • Resourcing and sharing
  • Working with organisations that are doing complementary work Producing hints and tips with practical advice to support and help people in parenting roles

This work is funded by the Scottish Government through the Children, Young People and Families Early Intervention Fund.

We will be working with local partners.
