The Mindful Parenting & Community Project is a not for profit Workers Cooperative, and has 5 members, Claire-Louise Symonds, Donna Person, Emma Thom, Jacky Slade and Julia Richmond. The aims are to:
· Raise awareness of the benefits of mindfulness with families with a particular focus on vulnerable and disadvantaged families without the means to access ‘mainstream’ mindfulness courses in their localities.
· Support parents in managing stress and difficulties in their lives in order for them to become more resilient, parent more effectively and engage more positively within their communities.
· Deliver a range of mindfulness training courses, workshops and information for parents and for professionals working with families and children in the Bristol and Avon area.
