For Commissioners

Through our courses and workshops, parents are able to share and reflect on their experiences and concerns. We recognise that one size does not fit all, so our sessions are semi-structured, ensuring that parents feel listened to and valued, with courses being built to their specific needs. Parents are able to leave with a deeper understanding of their children with a set of practical strategies to use at home, tailored to the individual family.

We are both accredited parenting practitioners and have completed evidence based parenting programmes including Parenting Positively, The Solihull Approach, Millpond Sleep Training, Positive Parenting (which includes Time Out for Parents) and the TEACCH approach, recognised by the National Autistic Society. We work collaboratively with many different organisations including Children Centres; Early Years Teams and settings; primary and secondary schools; home tutor groups; charities; parent support and additional needs groups.
