The Parent Champion Programme is a personal development course which was piloted in two Medway Children's Centres by 'Every Family Matters' from April 2011 - April 2013, sponsored by Big Lottery funding.

This evaluation of the programme examines evidence including parents' testimonies, questionnaire data and reports from professionals including Children's Centre Managers. The programme has resulted in some profound improvements for parents and vulnerable families including a 'stepping down' of Social Services provision for a significant number of families.

Approaches are based on coaching in the development of positive, connected, emotionally intelligent approaches that affirm parents and children as people and empower them as agents of change to make choices that improve their life chances and wellbeing. 12 participants have progressed to OCN Level 3 accreditation which includes developing capacity to champion the programme's approaches within the community.
