It takes a village to raise a child has become a famous saying for a reason. It is nice for all parents not to have to do it alone. But not everyone gets a helping hand when they need it. Support parents are adult volunteers who offer a hospitable home to a child for one or two half days a week. In this way they give families a helping hand.
Your help as a support parent helps prevent problems in families from arising or from getting worse. You offer a child a familiar place where they are welcome and where they can be a child. This gives parents space to catch their breath and it is nice to experience how you can share the care for children together.

How long?
How long you contribute depends on the
needs of the family and your possibilities. So
that can be short or long, but usually not shorter than
three months. The support parent coordinator investigates
with the parent what options are available to create their own safety net.

Practical
In order to become a supporting parent, you (and, if applicable, your partner) need a Certificate of Good Conduct (VOG). There are no costs involved.
Before you start, there is an introductory meeting and you receive a training of four half-days, full of tips and experiences to take advantage of. During the entire process, the coordinator remains available to fall back on in case of questions or problems.
The support parent coordinator carefully matches supply and demand, so that you are a good match. Of course it takes some getting used to. That is why we always start with an adjustment period in which everyone gets to know each other and trust can grow.
