Family learning and parenting

We give families the opportunity to learn new skills together, discover hidden talents and have some fun at the same time. Working with schools we help parents and carers to better understand how children learn and are taught in school so they can support their children’s learning and encourage positive behavouir in home and at school. We also provide opportunities for parents and carers to develop new skills and return to education.

  • ‘Healthy Families’ courses including Family Cookery, Healthy Share and. ‘Speakeasy’ (helping parents/carers to talk positively to their children about sex and relationships)
