Being a parent and raising children is one of the most important and rewarding jobs. At the same time it can be hard work and challenging. Babies and children change and develop at a rapid rate and parents need to adapt their approach to keep up.
Parenting programmes are one type of support available to parents and carers, which provides them with the opportunity to develop their skills and strategies in parenting and raising their children.
Programmes are mostly delivered to groups of parents and carers, who come together to work through a programme which has a track record of improving outcomes for families. The parenting programmes are delivered and facilitated by a trained worker who has experience of delivering the programme and supporting parents and carers to develop their parenting skills.
