Support for family relationships
Our group parenting programmes are suspended at the current time to ensure that guidance on social distancing is observed. We have added a wide range of free online parenting information on our advice for families page.
Being a parent can be tough, these group programmes are aimed at improving family relationships.
These programmes are free and if you're on low income you can claim back public transport costs.
Group programmes for parents/carers of children of all ages run throughout the year at a variety of community locations.
