How does it work?

Parent Coaches are trained volunteers and members of the Kiind community who offer to share their lived experience of raising a child with disability to support and guide another Kiind parent.

Kiind Coaches tend to be further along in their parenting journey and are ideally placed to help another parent develop the knowledge and skills they need to support their child’s unique needs and navigate the complex systems and services that are often involved.

The coaching process involves working one-on-one with another parent and may include setting goals, creating a plan of action and working through challenges as they arise.

If you would like to be connected with a Parent Coach, complete the expression of interest form below and a member of our Peer Navigation team will be in touch.

What are the benefits?

Parent Coaching is an evidence-based practice shown to have positive outcomes including:

  • Reduced social isolation
  • Increased wellbeing
  • Increased coping skills and capacity
  • Increased self-esteem
  • Reduced stress, anxiety, and depression

If you are a parent who would like to share your knowledge and experience with another Kiind member, than we’d love to hear from you.  Check out our volunteer page for more information.
