A mutual support programme for parents/primary care givers for people who are involved, or have issues, with the child welfare/protection system.
Inside Out began in November 2015 as a peer mentoring training programme for mums who have had a child removed by Social Services. There had previously been no support for mums in the child protection system in Norfolk.
The course was designed to facilitate parent to parent support, enabling mums to share their grief and their personal experiences, and help them feel less isolated.
Trained mentors from the pilot project are now able to support new mums that are being referred into the programme by Children’s Services.
