Being a Parent

Being a Parent is an 8 week group programme offered to parents/​carers of children aged from 2 to 11 years old. 

The course is led by trained Empowering Parents, Empowering Communities (EPEC) parent facilitators and aims to help children and families get the very best start in life by supporting you to manage your and your child's feelings, communicate and interact positively with your child, use positive behaviour management strategies and manage parental stress.

Parents are invited to attend a “coffee morning” a week before the course begins to learn more about the programme.

Sessions are offered virtually when face to face contact is restricted.
