We work with children, families and professionals. We support parents and families in caring for their children and provide therapeutic assistance to help children move on from abuse.
Services provided include:
- Minding the Baby programme - available to mothers aged 19 and under or 20-25 years old and receiving means-tested benefits who are having their first baby and are confident English speakers. Minding the Baby helps young, first-time mothers to develop a positive relationship and secure bond with their baby. The service aims to help mothers to develop their maternal reflective capacities, to recognise and respond to their baby’s feelings and needs.
- Parents Under Pressure (PUP) - a 20-week programme for parents and their partners who have a child up to 8 years old, and are on a drug or alcohol treatment programme. The allocated worker will visit the parents every week in their own home to provide support and guidance on parenting and maintaining their own emotional wellbeing. The programme aims to help parents facing adversity develop positive and secure relationships with their children, and uses a strengths based approach.
We also provide help and support through the NSPCC helpline, Childline and our work with schools.
