Help for parents


If you're a parent of a young child, we offer advice and support on many aspects of parenting, such as behaviour, eating and sleeping, going to school and special educational needs or disabilities.

Contact one of our Family centres or One Point hubs for more information about the support we provide and the courses we run. 

We want to work with you to ensure that your child is happy and healthy, and to tackle any problems that might affect their learning and development. The support we provide includes advice on:

  • bedtime routines
  • getting ready for school, including the importance of a healthy breakfast
  • help with setting boundaries, or putting rules in place
  • any issues that your child is experiencing, that's stopping them going to school
  • family relationships
  • support for children with special educational needs

If you want help with any of the above - or any other issues you're experiencing, please contact us.
