| Parents' Programmes
Our experience of working with both lone and couple parents has convinced us that, alongside one to one support, parents benefit tremendously from a period of group work, led by an expert facilitator with input from local support services. Through our structured activities, we help parents overcome the practical barriers, such as childcare, and build their confidence and motivation to find and keep a job.
Our parents' programmes:
- Take Three Days acts as a catalyst, and covers key practical concerns and boosts confidence and motivation.
- Take One Day provides an intensive focus getting and keeping a job.
- Parents' Job Clubs offer regular help in a supportive group that can provide both practical ideas and expert help.
We can deliver the sessions or train your teams to run the sessions. (link on this to training page)
Parents say the programmes are:
"Full of brilliant information and the trainers were amazing"
"The boost I needed to get me back to work"
We are experts in developing programmes in local children's Centres, having worked in over 50 different locations. We believe they are fantastic places for parents to gain their confidence and build the skills and motivation to get back to work. We can run programmes for you or train your staff to deliver them.
Our parents' programmes have been part of: Flexible New Deal, Childcare Affordability Programmes, Child Poverty Pilots, Local authority regeneration schemes, New Deal for Communities, New Deal for Lone Parents and will be part of the Work Programme
