Parenting Support

By supporting parents we are hoping to give children the best possible start in life. Parenting support is anything that helps parents in their important job of bringing up their children. This support might be information about child development, about local services, receiving advice and guidance about different aspects of parenting and support groups and parenting courses. Wrexham has a Parenting Team which supports parents of children aged 0-18years. Support is offered in a variety of ways which includes 1:1 support, group support and programmes which helps parents understand their child’s behaviour.

The Parenting Team also work with other services to co-deliver programmes or to help them develop provision for the parents they are supporting. For any information on the services the Parenting Team provide, please contact the Parenting Team 01978 352249

One to one support

Not all parents wish to attend a group or a structured programme and would prefer 1:1 support which is delivered either in the family home or an alternative venue which the parents feel comfortable with.

The 1:1 support we offer gives a tailor made package of support to parents based on their assessed needs.
