Working with Parents and Carers
We know that mothers, fathers and carers are the major influence on a child’s life and that a loving family is more relevant to a child’s well being than family status. However, we also know that its easier to be a good parent on some days than others. Parenting is not an easy job nor does it come with an easy-to-follow manual.
The Parenting Journey group is committed to raising awareness of what parents need to do to improve the life chances of their child. We are working to improve support to parents through telephone support lines and parenting programmes.
Our aim is to increase the level of effective practice in parenting work through creating a network of agencies and accredited facilitators to support local integrated delivery of structured parenting programmes.
Through this site, we aim to provide information to parenting practitioners from all agencies including the voluntary sector about current programmes, good practice training opportunities and events. We hope you will find the site useful.
