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)

Parents can self-refer onto programmes. Any professional or organisation will also be able to refer a parent onto a programme. The consent of the parents should be gained prior to referral being made; the only exception to this is where attendance of the programme is a condition of Parenting Order.
Parents and Professionals should refer using the Parenting Referral Form to streamline the process however professionals can also refer by using the Common Assessment Framework (CAF) form.
Completed referral forms are available from and should be emailed directly to
