Lickety Mums

The Story so Far

Lickety Mums was established in 2021 to support parents through the Pandemic. Primarily focussed on digital support, these zoom sessions were also a chance for Mums to socialise, bond and play!

We had some trips to Glasgow parks and many participants expressed a desire to become more directly involved in the hosting aspects of Storyplay events like Porridge & Play.

We call the volunteers who assist in this way Storyplay Champions – volunteers who have received training in the key expert areas of the company’s work – facilitating imaginary play, event planning, cooking and providing the food element to projects.

Becoming Storyplay Champions!

In 2022/23, Lickety Mums are taking part in Storyplay Champion training, developing transferrable skills to not only apply in context of Storyplay sessions but in their personal and professional lives. Sessions provide training & experience in:

⭐️ facilitation of the Lickety Playcard (repertoire)
⭐️ session planning and reflection
⭐️ child protection
⭐️ digital safeguarding
⭐️ food hygiene
⭐️ first aid
Join Lickety Mums

The project is supported by Scottish Government Community Mental Health & Wellbeing Funding, distributed by GCVS.

There is potential for the group to explore other opportunities and activities. Training will be provided by Licketyspit staff and guest experts and structured to ensure confidence is instilled in you in each of these areas.

We want this project to be really enjoyable and enhance the skills of our fabulous Lickety Mums. As a volunteering opportunity it can be added to CVs and we can provide employer references. The sessions will also be fun and social!
