Supporting Parents to Raise Happy and Successful Young People
Without effective parental support, young people find it very difficult to develop early learning skills and competencies. Young people with most needs often come from families where parents have little understanding of the education, employment and training systems and structures of the UK.
Our supporting parents programmes improve the awareness and understanding of child development, support and the education and employment opportunities for parents to support their children effectively.
Enabling Parents To Give Children The Best Possible Outcomes
We run two programmes focused on parents from racially and socially disadvantaged backgrounds to support and guide their young children to lead happier and more fulfilled lives.
Strengthening Families, Strengthening Communities (SFSC)
This is a 13-weeks (3 hours per week) culturally sensitive programme that supports parents to strengthen their parenting skills and enhance relationships with their children. The programme considers ways to build stronger community connections and promote children’s safety and wellbeing. It addresses community and personal issues, managing emotions, child development, building positive family relationships, and how to value family and cultural traditions at home.

Parental Engagement and Knowledge Development Sessions
Parents play a significant role in narrowing social gaps by providing timely, relevant and suitable support. However, many parents lack understanding of the UK education and employment systems making it difficult for them to support the young people in accessing skills, work and other opportunities available to them. We organised awareness raising, knowledge sharing, information dissemination, among other events and activities aimed at improving the parents' understanding of the UK school system, its curriculum, pedagogical practices, and ways of addressing issues such as parents’ low-self efficacy levels due to language proficiency inadequacies and self belief.
We help parents to understand the significance of their participation in improving the education, job outcomes of their children and how they can positively act in making this happen.Join Upcoming Event!
