Could you be a Parent Champion?

The council is looking for Parent Champions to help improve the lives of families in their local communities.

Group of parents

Parent Champions make a significant impact on the lives of children and parents in their area, whilst supporting the council.

Champions need to be parents and will therefore be able to chat naturally with other parents and share your own experiences and talk for a few hours each week about Hillingdon's family services. They will provide families with access to information about council services and get feedback on them, which in turn allows the council to shape services to support families' needs and put them first.

You will provide an important bridge between the council and parents in your area.

There are also roles available for Parent Champions to promote council services for early years children, such as free childcare for two-year-olds. By getting involved with these services, parents and children can experience greater social integration and it could also benefit a child's learning. Parent Champions also support the development of Hillingdon's Disability Register by raising awareness of the benefits of registering and how it helps the council to monitor and develop appropriate facilities and services for disabled people and their families and carers.

What makes a Parent Champion: 

  • the ability to confidently talk to other parents about opportunities available to them and their child(ren) and listen to what they say
  • working voluntarily for a few hours a week
  • ability to maintain confidentiality and protect family information
  • attending Parent Champion support meetings
  • you will need to undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service check (criminal record check)
  • ability to complete and return monitoring forms and information to the council and follow council guidelines
