Parenting Support
Being a parent is probably one of the most difficult- but also for many people, one of the most rewarding things to do!
We offer many different kinds of support:

If you have children under 5, you can contact our Family Support / outreach team who can visit you at home and spend some time talking things over with you. If you have children over 5 the local Home School Link Worker can offer additional support. See "Meet your local team" for details.

You might also like to meet other parents who have children the same age, just to know you are not alone in the challenges you might face. At our activity sessions you can have a good time with your child, join in different activities and also meet new people.

You might like to join a Family Links parenting course where you will meet other parents and find tips and new ways of understanding your children's behaviours. This will help you to make some positive changes to improve family life.
