What is Parenting Support

Parenting Support is evidence-based and aims to increase support for parents/carers of children aged 18 months —18 years old at risk of negative outcomes. The parenting support service supports parents/carers to ensure that they receive a coordinated package of parenting support.

Families who would benefit from parenting support include those with children who are at risk of:

  • Poor school attendance
  • Exclusion from school
  • Becoming involved in anti-social behaviour
  • Families identified as needing early intervention for mild to moderate mental health difficulties
  • Substance misuse (drugs or alcohol)
